Julie’s surgery is scheduled for Mid August. She will have a lumpectomy that will remove approximately 3/4 of her breast tissue and will then undergo 7 to 8 weeks of radiation treatment.
They are telling us that the surgery will be about 30 minutes and then another few hours in recovery but she should be able to go home that same day.
She will have a drain tube and they will give her a physical therapy schedule for about two weeks to help keep her muscles in her arm from atrophying.
The recovery from the surgery will be the easy compared to the radiation.
Crap. This is really happening.
