Hello Bluetit, you may get a quicker response if you ring the nurses - you can request another appointment to discuss this if you have not had the opportunity to do so or are not happy with the explanation .Could it be you've been asked to give consent for an ANC if during the op they find sentinel nodes are cancerous ? Some hospitals have the facilities to test the nodes during the op and this can avoid a second op / anaesthetic.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Hopefully one of the other ladies might be able to help with your query, however I would suggest you call your breast care nurse, explain to her that you were not aware of the ANC before seeing it on your pre op form and ask her about it. They tend to be a good source of advice and understanding of things.
