Anyone had an RFID tag localization?
I am scheduled for a lumpectomy on Jan. 9 and my surgeon's assistant had talked to me about wire localization before the surgery. When I got a text from the diagnostic radiology facility today to confirm my appointment on Jan. 3 (they never called to schedule, just sent a text) I freaked out because I didn't want wires sticking out of my breast for nearly a week before the surgery! After spending an hour getting passed around between clueless people on the phone, I finally found someone who told me I'm not having a wire localization but an RFID tag localization, which can be done much earlier and doesn't stick out.
I asked the woman about any restrictions on activity between getting the tag and having my surgery, as I will need to work and have my young (3 and 5) nieces visiting for a couple of days in that time. She wasn't really very helpful, said I'd be able to shower, but mostly just said "The tech will tell you about all of that when you go." Well, I would like to be a bit more prepared for what to expect!
Has anyone here had this done? What was the procedure like? Were there any restrictions on your activity afterwards? Was it painful?
