I'm scheduled for lower left leg wide exsicion (+skin graft) and SLNB on 8/11. I'm equally as scared of surgery/recovery as I am of outcome...has anyone had this? FYI, I plan to have drainage tube for SLNB.
If so, can you share your recovery/experience with me? I'm the mom a busy 5 year old starting kindergarten, I have a f/t job and a husband that travels...not a good combo for bed rest.
Also, do you think I'm at risk for lymphedema? Other than this I am healthy and in shape..should that be an asset in recovery?
I am grateful for any feedback; many thanks!
