Hi @sunlover, depending on where the lump is you may be pretty immobile for quite a while. The recovery from this can take many weeks and you probably need to be thinking about respite care for your husband during your recovery as your children could struggle taking that amount of time off work. Some hospitals do "hospital at home" or similar schemes where they offer extra help and support at home for a set amount of weeks. It may be with talking to your local Admiral Nurse or Social Worker if you have one.
