I do not sleep through the night. Regrettably, I stay awake and think of my Stereotactic Breast Biopsy.
I fall asleep to thoughts of my Stereotactic Breast Biopsy.
I am exhausted. However, I do not stay asleep.
I cannot clear my mind as I wait for my breast biopsy. I know that most biopsies come back with negative results. Therefore, I should not be very worried but it is very difficult.
I truly thought that my biopsy would be for my lump. In fact, I am still in shock that the issue is “abnormal tissue”.
My husband drives me to my appointment and they take me exactly on time.
I change for my Stereotactic Breast Biopsy and get more films before being brought into the surgical room.
The table is quite high off of the ground.
I must lay in such a way that my breast can go through the opening in the table. I am subjected to yet another mammogram machine.
Then we begin this very unpleasant procedure.
When it is all over I ask an interesting question.
May I see the extracted tissues?
Who am I?
This is not something that I would normally ask and yet I even go so far as to take a picture of it.
Two hours after arrival I am released, I am sore, and I am nervous.
It may be as many as seven business days before I get my test results.

I also have had that happen to me. Unfortunately, it proved malignant and I did have Breast Cancer Stage 1. The beginning of this journey left me feeling so helpless. Glad to say it is all in the past and I am now happy to be Cancer free for 2 years now.
I am grateful to hear that you are currently cancer free.
Some time ago.. in 2011. How are things now going into 2018 … thinking of you
2017 is awesome, 2018 is yet to come but will be great.
I know sometimes it’s hard to stay positive on this kind of situation but at the end of the day it’s how we handle our emotions that helps us push through.
Yes, I do think you are right about that. One of the reasons that I shared this is because I also want people to know it is okay to feel however they are feeling.
