Mast cell surgery on paw joint

Hello
my 10 year old female Boxer is going to have a tennisball sized tumor on her front paw removed, it took a while to find an experient surgoen who took on the challenge and we considered all other options. Since she is, apart from the tumor, fit for her age with no heart noises etc I am hoping to pick her up tomorrow after the sugery and I am wondering what to expect and what to watch out for. By how I understand it, its going to be a rather big wound, is it bandaged even when there was not enough skin to cover the wound up?

Our neighbor's dog had similar surgery for a cancerous growth.  Yes, bad area due to the lack of skin.  I am nit sure, but they may have done  a skin graft also.  It was a long recovery, post op checks, keeping the dog quiet so it didn't rip.  Wish I remembered more.  It did eventually heal and hope you have a good outcome also.
