Unhappy My 7 yr old daughter is having radioactive surgery Sept 30..i'm so stressed

in August she had this strawberry mole that was raise and we had it removed for we didn't want the brush or clothes rubbing/catching on it. well the results came in..an Atypycal Spitz Tumor..long story short..on the 30,the surgeon will inject radioactive in her back and she will be sedated and under a camera to see where it goes and which lypph nodes get bright...they will then take her to the OR and remove the bright lymph node(s), (which I hope and pray there is none or just one if any) they will use a hand held camera to detect where the bright lymph(s) are. PLUS the surgeon has to cut out the mole that the doctor who removed it, just removed the top.

in addition to all this, my husband,her dad, he went to the specialist today for a colonoscopy ... hope and pray it is just scar tissue and no bad news.
(when he was a little kid,he swallowed a toothpick and got lodged in his colon...he was on a liquid diet and in the hospital until it dislodged...so it could be scar tissue now.right?)

No wonder you're stressed, I would be too!! I will be praying for your little girl.
What happened with your husband at the doctor yesterday?

God bless, Sue

Well Crohns isn't wonderful but it sure could be worse! When does your little one have her procedure?

Re: My 7 yr old daughter is having radioactive surgery Sept 30..i'm so stressed

She is going for her physical this Wed. and Friday the 30th Sept is her surgery..check in is at 8:30 and note liberty is not suppose to eat or drink after midnight...they'll take her to nuclear medicine..the doctor first off did not remove all of the mole,so Dr Goldman has to cut the rest out. They do not use dyes no more because they leave a blue mark,they use a radioactive now that he says he uses it in pregnant women so it's safe. he says they will keep it under a camera so they can watch it as the radioactive spreads,the lymph gland will brighten so they know which to remove.....ok...under the left arm is suspected to go because of the location of the mole but it can go to the right side and very uncommon the neck but he does not think it will travel to the neck.
they will keep her overnight.
