Re-excision under only local? Scheduled tomorrow.
Long story short I contracted Covid. The hospital has cancelled my oncoplastic lumpectomy (which I’m devastated about but can’t even processes what a mess my breast will be now).
They told me they are doing to do a re-excision while I am awake using local anesthesia now bc they won’t intubated me for four weeks post Covid (even though I wasn’t very sick at all. Sore throat x2 days. Dry occ cough x 3 days).
Anyone have a lumpectomy or re-excision just with local anesthesia? How was it?
I had a lumpectomy so I’m not very afraid of the healing. Last time it was the sentile node that bugged me so I’m pretty sure this will be a walk in the park.
Thanks for any insight.
