Vulvar Cancer Treatments at Mayo Clinic I had two procedures at the Mayo Clinic and the first one was to remove the cancer and Dr. Magtibay came in and said, “We’ve got it all. You will not need any chemo”or whatever they give you after and he was delighted, but he said, “But we really should take out those lymph nodes, the left and the right, to make sure that it’s all gone.” And so it was approximately a week later I had the two lymph nodes removed. That was a little bit longer. I was at the hospital for about a day, maybe two, I don’t remember exactly, and then home for a couple weeks. It was very short, really, until that healed and then, it was just a very short procedure and no problems at all, and of course I would see the doctor every week when going through the recovery.
