My Stereotactic Breast Biopsy

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
