The point of this scan is to find the sentinel nodes and see if they contain cancer so they could be removed during surgery. It helps the surgeon during surgery so they know which nodes need to be tested, the tracer is also a blue dye the surgeon is able to see with the naked eye.
After several scans the techs concluded the tracer/dye did not move into my axilla. We tried arm exercises but unfortunately it didn't help. I was pretty frustrated because we spend hours on this scan and I wanted the doctors to utilize it during surgery. I later found out that sometimes it takes several hours for the tracer to move and it was possible to still assist the surgeon.
Finally my last scan before surgery!
Met with Kacie and Ashley for breakfast before leaving Chico.
