Hello friends! I had a clear MRI, and the results from my biopsy was BENIGN! So the plan moving forward it to do another mammo in 6 months to see if there are any changes in the group of calcifications that are behind my nipple. They only biopsied the ones that were deep in the breast, and another US on the lump in the foob that remained unchanged. My BS also wants to alternate MRI and Mammo every 6 months. I have already decided that if they want to biopsy these other calcifications at the next mammo I am going to pursue getting a mastectomy on that side. I simply cannot do that anxiety again. Thank you all so much for checking in about my results, sorry I was slow to respond on this thread. I really appreciate you all and this community has made such a difference for me.
Purplecat- So glad you got good news at your mammo and were able to do a happy dance! So sweet of you to encourage the other patient that was waiting. I am sure that made a difference for her. How are things going with your fatigue? I definitely feel better when I get up and exercise, but it is just so hard some days. Glad you were able to get away and enjoy some hiking, sounds awesome. I really feel like mine is no doubt coming from the tamoxifen.
Pebbles- YAY for cancer free results, so very happy for you!! It would be so cool for us to have a get together down the road.
DeeDeeT- Great news for you on your results from the mammo and colonoscopy:) I have yet to schedule mine but I know I need to. I am so sorry you are having to go through this testing for your ovaries. Waiting the weekend really does suck. I am sending all the good thoughts your way for benign results. I hope you can find some distraction while you wait, but I know how hard that can be.
Cherryi3- Uggg I am sorry you are dealing with rib pain I really hope that it starts to resolve! It is nice to hear that the meds are making a difference for your anxiety. The effexor my MO started me on helped a bit with mine, but I plan on asking my BS about acupuncture, she mentioned she refers peolpe for hot flashes, but I have heard it can help with anxiety too.
Wishing everyone a good weekend, it has turned chilly here in Indiana today but the sun is shining bright. It feels like a perfect fall day:)
