My Uncle seems to be doing well after his surgery. I haven't been by since I've had some troublesome allergies and I don't want to pass my germs on to the family, but things seem to be going as planned.
My friend's surgery also seems to be a success as well. They did find some cancer in her lymph nodes, but they got it all in surgery. She'll probably still have to have chemo/radiation or something of the sort.
