Needle Biopsy went very well

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

I took myself to the appt. for the ultrasound guided needle biopsy. I was getting a bit edgy waiting for my turn but once they called me it was smooth sailing. The Dr was ace's. He explained what was going to happen and chatted with me while he prepared for the proceedure. He numbed my right breast and checked to see if I could feel the needle he would use. I was able to watch the whole thing with no discomfort. He took five samples for the lab and then placed a tytanium staple at the spot should more needed to be done. He said he has done 3000 of these and he felt mine was just a fibroid and would be OK

He explained that I would get another mamagram to show the staple was in the right place. He also said no lifting and to take tylenol for any discomfort. Black and blue is normal and so is a little bleeding

My DH was home when I got back and went and got take out for our lunch and then I named. It was nice to have DH there to help keep me from worrying.

I should have results by Friday so I will post that info ASAP. I know many women have had some experience with doubtful mamagrams or more. I hope my information has been helpful .
