Oh my, you sure have a lot going on. Such a scary time, not to mention confusing. As for xanax - hey, I figure whatever we need to get us through, that's what we do, right?
I thought I'd have my results yesterday, but nope, nothing. I sort of practiced, as others have mentioned, thinking OK, I have cancer, what's my next step? I'm afraid to be too optimistic, given the particulars in my situation. I was actually relieved last night not to have bad information and ended up sleeping like a baby. Of course, I pretty much jump out of my skin ever time the phone rings. I will definitely be getting my results today, probably in the next couple of hours, and am a wreck. I literally can't see straight - the stress is making my vision wonky. Just trying to keep busy. Even my little dogs know something's up, they're being extra attentive and affectionate.
A few people know I had the biopsy - only the ones who have a good understanding of what this is all about. I sent them emails when I got home, letting them know things went just fine and I was recovering. I'm thankful that no one has called, even though I know they're anxiously waiting to hear. I don't want to talk to anyone yet. I'm thankful for this website. I learned about BI-RADS ratings here, so I asked the radiologist what mine is as she was doing the prep stuff pre-biopsy. I thought she'd say 3, she said 4. I know it's possible this *thing* is benign (no mass, btw), but still feeling pretty doomed right now.
I wish you great luck with your upcoming procedure, thinking positive thoughts for you, and everyone. I wanna get off this train now! Conductor ... let me out please!!
