For members not diagnosed with breast cancer, but waiting for test results: Biopsy, mammogram, ultrasound, or other screening tests. Waiting is VERY difficult but remember...

hurrah - after a wait of 3 weeks I finally had my biopsy today. Was much easier than I thought with the only stress being told I must not move at all (at least 50 times) - I find this makes me want to move ...
Anyhow I managed to stay still and biopsy of 6Calcifications done first go around. Radiologist said that although 2 areas of calcification he would only biopsy first as they were fairly near to each other. If biopsy shows anything, both would be removed at the same time. If on the other hand biopsy is clear he will do another biopsy on the 2nd area - oh joy!
BS appointment on 16th for results so the never-ending wait is nearly over ....Log in to post a reply

thanks cocomedy and jeri64 - heading out soon!
The biopsy was far better than I was expecting - I'm not going to tell you to stay calm as that's pointless BUT I felt loads better after having the biopsy and I personally found it easier than the mammograms, so hopefully the procedure itself won't stress you out too much! I also got to see my images from mammograms and us - I just asked the technician.
Right now I'm fighting the underlying panic but am normally pretty happy go lucky so I think once today is over I will be fine... Fingers crossed

Well yesterday was another shambolic day. Got to hospital to be told that they had changed my appointment to 23rd but forgotten to tell me! Anyway the nurse said no problem, we will see you. 2 1/2 hours later the surgeon comes along and says we don't have your biopsy results yet, so I actually can't tell you anything.
So no results! But a promise that she will call me when she gets the results. 2nd time this hospital has done this ... Truly not adding more stress to an already stressful situation.
Not long till your biopsy now - how are you doing???

Oh I'm sorry to hear this!! The waiting is enough to drive you crazy! I'm hanging in there. As you can understand, I just want to get the biopsy over with and get the results. I'm learning to practice patient and take it one step at a time though. Well, please let me know what you find out. I'm thinking about you. Sending positive thoughts your way! :)

Arrrrrrrg!! How awful for you Golfnut33! I’ve been checking your post often to see what happened, and feel so bad that you’re still waiting, in what must be total frustration. Please know that we’re all waiting with you and keeping positives and support flowing your way! Yes, one step at a time.

How frustrating! I have to drive two hours to my "local" hospital so I'd be plenty miffed if I got there and they had nothing to tell me! Four hours in the car for an "Oops, sorry." Anyway, keep busy with your favorite pass times and think as positively as you can! Let us know how it goes.

jen64 - thinking good thoughts for your biopsy today .....
Deepwaters and egads007 - was frustrating but I'm so over the whole thing now. Worst thing is that I have to go back in 6 months for redo on other breast - so I'll have the whole thing over again ... Still awaiting results BUT the sun is shining finally and all is goo

Golfnut33- so glad to see you’re feeling better today! Time is good for that (heals all), like you I get sick of it after a while and it makes things bearable. Enjoy that sunshine and keep us posted.
