I have my lumpetomy tomorrow. I don't know what I feel right now. I want to get it done and over with but I'm afraid of all that is to happen after the surgery. I know for sure that I will have 6 weeks of radiation and am unsure of chemo yet. They caught it early and it is only about 2 cm so I have to wait until after the surgery and sentinal node biopsy. Can anyone tell me how long it took for them to go back to work? I teach in a middle school and with all the cases of swine flu going around (not to mention all the other germs that are normally there) I am worried about catching something.
