If you had an MRI prior to surgery, did it change your plan?
My apologies if this questions is naive, I am still very new to all of this and trying to understand what to expect, possible scenarios, etc.
In brief: My mamm found calcifications that a subsequent biopsy showed as IDC. I was told that I need to have an MRI prior to surgery, which I just scheduled for next week (that was the soonest available appt). Meanwhile, I have my first meeting with the surgeon this Wednesday. So I'm sort of curious about how to expect this to all play out.
I assume when I meet with the surgeon this week she will propose a surgical plan based on mamm and biopsy results.
But since my MRI will happen the following week, what is the likelihood that whatever she proposes will all end up being scrapped?
If you had an MRI prior to surgery, did it greatly affect your surgical/treatment plan? Or was it mainly just a confirmation of the plan? Or?
