Dad only had 12 lymphnodes removed during surgery, all came back clean. Then I've been reading where some have had up to 20 removed and 1 was positive. I guess I'm second questioning if anyone had had chemo after surgery with no postive nodes detected. I'm thinking if more were removed maybe 1 would have been positive. All the doctors said no chemo needed but 12 lymphnodes doesn't seem like many compared to what I'm reading. Not that I would have ever wanted more chemo for Dad, I guess I'm just a ball of nerves because his 1st scan is July 1st and I'm a nervous wreck about the results. I guess I'm wanting to make sure we've done all that we can do for him.
