Been there, done that.... Universally, waiting for this type of test result is like torture. In my case, I didn't have to wait long as the dr. doing the biopsy told me to expect mine to be breast cancer. No surprise when I received the call. Thankfully, most lumps are not cancer. I have reached the 5 year mark.... healthy, and cancer free. I hope and pray you a benign finding. Take care, Sharon
Oh wow, I hope the dr. doing the biopsy says something. My doc says it doesn't look good but there is a slight chance it's a calcification due to my breast implants. He sent me for an emergency mammogram when he saw the lump. The technician said it could be up to two weeks for the results due to the long weekend but I received a call the next morning from both the hospital and the doctor. Still a glimmer of hope but not much. 5 year mark is wonderful! Congratulations Sharon! My mother is not quite 2 years yet.
Today must be your birthday then lild4. Hope you have a wonderful day! Good luck tomorrow with the mammogram.
I'm feeling pretty good today. I'm going to have a shower and change the dressings so it will be my first time looking under the bandages :S I'm sure it can't be too bad.
Oh wow, such a long wait. When is ur next appt.? Is it a diagnostic mammogram? The wait is definitely the worst!
I'm doing pretty good. Going back to work tomorrow. My follow-up isn't till the 25th when I find out the full pathology and treatment plan but the first wait was far worse than this one. At least I know somewhat what I am dealing with. I'm feeling pretty confident about the results and think I may only have to do RADS. I can handle that and prob. still work.
I finally had the biopsy yesterday! They took 10 samples! No the wait for the results. I have a consult with the surgeon on the 30th. He should have the preliminary by then. Fingers crossed!
hello, I had a node and a cyst in my left breast and it was sore for a bit and next that i know it ballooned went to gyn they put me on antibiotics but wasnt working i am now currently on my thrid round of antibiotics last week i went for my biopsy and when the doc saw it she had to drain it but in the mist of draining it she also took some culture of it as well but i ended up in the emergency surgery that afternoon, needless to say that the intraveinous antibiotic that they gave me did not work, I got a call from the doctors and they told me that the culture they took showed that the clindamyicin was not effective because the bacteria was resistant, so now im taking Dicloxacillin finger crossed that this one works but now i got to deal with a gapping hole in my breast and a nurse that comes to the house to change the packing everyday for the next two weeks.
