I am having sentinel node biopsy and then surgery.
i have not had surgery before and i guess i assumed i would go in, get some stiches , and that is that.
But in fact i will get a pretty good chunck of myself cutout and plastered over, hence the plastic surgeon and not my dermatologist.
my question: what is the recovery like?

You need to ask some questions of your provider: what anesthesia are you using? will I be outpatient and go home shortly after the procedure? When will you have the results? Will we talk about adjuvant therapy then. What discomfort will I feel? I hope this helps you. Try to take good care of yourself in the meantime and soon the procedure will be over.
