I have had a pretty big lump under my arms for years and now it as big as a breast and I am getting surgery tomorrow. Has anyone gone through surgery? What should I expect.

Surgical excision of a lipoma is a very simple surgery, and recovery time is also very reasonable.

You may need to stay in the hospital for a day or two and you would recover completely in about 10 days.
