Sentinal node biopsy question
Had my lumpectomy yesterday with Sentinal Node Biopsy. Post op my surgeon said she removed three nodes. When I asked, "Why three" She replied, "Because three lit up."
Then she was gone before I could ask a follow up, unto the next surgery.
Is lighting up a bad thing? Or do they usually remove three?
Nothing like a vague response to pump up the anxiety!
Thank you in advance for your response!
