NEVER look back on your decision. You were told you had cancer, and you made the best decision for yourself with the information you had.
With that said, I agree with Jim, about
the pathology report. It seems to me to be unconscionable that you had surgery in October and were never provided with a copy of or gotten the results of, the pathology report. I would contact the chief of pathology and ask him or her about
it. And if you don't get results, go to the President of the hospital if you have to, and threaten to file a complaint. You have a legal right to that information and its important and relevant to any follow up you should or should not have.
Be the greasy wheel here, make some noise.
