Exisional Biopsy Soon
I’m getting pretty nervous about my Exisional Biopsy Monday the 9th. The nurse called yesterday and asked if had bathing instructions. I hadn’t even thought of that. I’m putting fresh sheets on the bed, have wipes for sponge baths, easy to open pain relievers. I was not given any prep instructions. Any ideas on how to prepare to make this small, yet scary surgery, as easy as possible? I t is so hard to get in touch with my surgeon. I am concerned with possible infections, scarring and you name it. Also I have been told that they will use general anesthesia which I didn’t think I’d have. I know this is similar to a lumpectomy, that’s what the surgeon called it and she is taking out the suspicious area and the margins around it. When I try to look things up on-line different sites tell me different things. What are others thoughts and experiences? I’ve been on this site several times. I guess I’m a Nervous Nelly. My best to everyone.
