my mom just had a bilateral mastectomy last week. She had the Sentinal node removed removed from where the tumors were. One at 9 o'clock, and one at 3 o'clock. So, the surgeon says that she can have blood pressure taken, and blood draws, because they did not remove and nodes under her arm. Is this right? I though no matter where the sentinal node was removed we should always take precautions. Can she still get lymphedema even if one node was touched? I thought so, What do you all think??
