Results of sentinel node byopsy

Well it's been five weeks since I had my operation in my foot and skin graft plus sentinel node byopsy. I hade two nodes removed and one came back positive (not good) I now have to have another operation to remove all my lymph nodes in my right groin which will take place on the 3rd of October at christies Manchester. I will be staying in for a couple of days because I will have a couple of drains in. Does anybody know what size the drains are I don't know what to wear coming home #help. That's it for now I am still trying to process the news. Love deli
