I also had a lumpectomy and felt great that afternoon...I also had 4 lymph nodes removed...I looked at the clock as they wheeled me into surgery then looked at the clock while still in recovery...I was literally in & out in 30 mins!..I do have 2 minimal scars but it was nice to keep the boob....yes, my advice is to apply ice to the areas for the next 48 hrs (no heat!)...it felt so good and I only had to take Advil once for discomfort...also avoid lifting or pulling the arm on the affected side for several weeks after to minimize discomfort til fully healed...you'll do fine!
