I'm looking for advice and experiences from those who have been there/done that with this surger. I have a rather large (the radiologist said "plum sized") lymph node in my right armpit that tested positive for MM that I'm expecting they're going to want to remove. However, I can't find much more than general information about this surgery, especially what to expect afterwards. Questions that come to mind: is this an outpatient surgery, or do they keep you in the hospital and if so, for how long? How long can I expect recovery to take? Any advice/suggestions to offer to prepare for this surgery?
