It was almost 9 years ago, so memory fades. My surgeon said he might take some, did explain there could be side effects, and he did ask for an immediate pathology quick check before he closed me up. That turned out to be a good call, as he took additional tissue based on the review, which included 11 or 12 lymph nodes. All were negative, but the EPE was widespread enough that we went to Adjuvant RT.
