Re: [MOL] testing cancer during staging/ Lil/Liz



I would think so; but they took out 17 nodes and some were wrapped around
the nerve; so I think that plays a part and the chest mussle hurts from the
mastectomy.  I would have thought that it would have stopped hurting; but I
am not so sure at this point if it ever will.  I think my surgeon just
wasn't so hot and that is why I feel so blessed on this line.  I have
learned so much on line...your friend, lillian
