Discussions that mention valium

Cancer: Breast board


thank you, yes, it helps.........just to talk to someone with the experience, isn't the waiting just pure torture?
the dr. also prescribed valium for me to take before the procedure, he said, I have to be very still, how long did yours take?
Just wanted to add my 2 cents. I had the stereotactic biopsy also. It wasn't too bad. As I remember, (2yrs ago), it took about 30 minutes. - The radiologist DID have to go in a 2nd time, as she did not get enough tissue the 1st time.

Unfortuately mine was positive for breast cancer, but I have a family hx. It was caught very early though, and I should be fine.

Hope all goes well. With the valium, you should be fairly relaxed.
