My biopsy went easier than I expected it to be wore a cat mask to it ! The only thing I felt was the quick lidocaine sting that made my feet jump !
I did have severe anxiety before that I was getting nauseauated fearing it was going to be painful and for so long instead it wasn't painful and was shorter than I had expected it to be .
My sxs Right after the Biopsy Nauseau, Very sore shoulder , burning in the sternum area and at the top of the breast bone, tired , and a bit light headed.
Tues Severe pain in the stomach , nauseau still , had twinges in breast area
Wed Period arrived Stomach cramps settled down, tired wanted to continue to sleep after 9 but still had to wake up,as I had stuff to do .
Thurs,not much appetite still made my son his b-day dinner with his friends even tho his b-day isn't until in a week but this was the only day they could make it as they be out of town for awhile like til the mid August . I was tired and falling to sleep almost on the computer after his friends left . Bruising started to appear . Heart burn feeling this day right in the lower part below of the sternum .
Fri Lower part of Armpit is sore it also makes a clicking sound when I move my left arm up and i am very very very tired today . I also haven't eaten much just ate some cheese with guacomole , nutri grain and some egg sandwich for dinner . Today was the first day after the biopsy that I didn't wake up like at 6 am and then fall back asleep as i slept straight thru today ! I do have a bit of a headache
Sat I'm still feeling pretty tired and do have a bit heartburn feeling below sternum area only 5 days out of biopsy site . First day I slept to 10 am after losing sleep on Monday due to a mistake a clinic ride made so I barely had any sleep on Monday due to that along with nerves keeping me up that nite then I fell asleep that day at 6am thinking I would get 5 hrs of sleep that day but only ended up with 2 because they called up at 8 saying are you up ! I'm coming at 10 ( why in the world wake me up at 8 am when you say your not going to show up until 10 ? Then continue to call at like 8:30 sharing that I had the wrong time and it was at 1030 and that she be here at 10 to take me to it . Then I call up n go oh of course it's still the same time as in 1:30 . So here I couldn't fall back to sleep because after being woken up due to a mistake by that person then trying to get back to sleep calls kept coming in one after another .
Mon nite Trouble getting to sleep woke up on Tues Morning at 6 am . Fell Back Asleep at 730
Tues Morning Fully Awake at like 9 ,Tues Nite Trouble getting to sleep until like 3:30 . Woke up at 6 am on Wednesday morning fell back to sleep at 7 am Wed morning
Wed Forced to wake up at 8:30 am because my grocery transportation was coming at 9 am to take me shopping since I don't drive and I felt I could sleep even longer than 830
Thurs and Fri morning I actually slept straight to 9 am on Thursday and Fri . Still Thursday & Fri Nite Pretty tired at nite time .
I did get my biopsy results back yesterday they said from the core needle biopsy it's benign fibrofatty tissue with fat necrosis and rare calcium oxalate crystals on my left side so I'm wondering what you guys think of those results?
I don't remember having any trauma or surgery to that area in the past . I did do a lot of on demand breast feeding for a extended period of time all the way until my son was about to start school . He automatically weaned himself off after that . Which was quite a long time ago as he is a high school kid now. I did have a lot of surgeries as a kid with having lots of sticky stuff stuck to me on my chest so if fat necrosis of the breast is due to surgery trauma would that make my biopsy site have trouble healing or forming more fat necrosis because of the biopsy ?
Also , is it more likely for the other breast as in my right side to have the same thing that my left side ended up getting diagnosed with even tho my right side didn't get biopsied but it did show calcifications on my right side which the dr figured they were more likely benign without a biopsy on the right side .
I know I'm just 5 days into recovery and I am happy that I don't have cancer but for those who have had biopsy when were you guys more up to par ?
