Hi everyone. This is my first message on here. I had surgery on Tuesday..lumpectomy and node excision. Feeling a bit down today, physically and emotionally. Just out of curiosity, does anyone know why I have arrows drawn on my upper leg, same side as affected breast, and what the little blue/black dots are on the top of my breast ( like constellations!). Thanks in advance. Judy
