       I saw the surgeon this afternoon.  I will have lymph nodes removed from my left pelvic area and from under my left arm. He is going to coordinate with the GYN so that this surgery can happen at the same time as the LEEP procedure I am going to have.  I will know Monday afternoon when they will take place.

          Hope they schedule it soon – waiting is tough.  What the heck is LEEP?    Good luck with both procedures and keep us posted.

              LEEP is the name of the a procedure, but basically, I am having a polyp removed from my cervix.
