Hi Polly,

Most consultants prefer to give all results, whether good or bad, face-to-face.

However, in some areas, people have been given both good and bad news over the phone.

I hope that she gets good news on Monday.

Kind regards,

Good news ref your boss. Did they say anything more about your biopsy? It may well be they didn't get sufficient cells....xxx

Hi Marlyn

I was due at the hospital tomorrow, for my biopsy results.  The consultant started off by saying ‘good news, you don’t have to come tomorrow, but I have good news and bad news. Some of the cells are benign, but the pathologist saw something they didn’t like’.  So I need another biopsy to check again.  So confused.   She couldn’t tell me anymore

Hi Polly,

I'm delighted for your boss. She must be over the moon.

Your biopsy results seem to be a bit confusing.. I am sorry that this means a further wait for you.

Have you got a date for your other biopsy yet? Try not to worry about this, your doctors are very thorough and, will want to make sure that they have an accurate diagnosis, before they decide on your treatment. Many people have to have additional biopsies and tests in order to get a clear cut diagnosis. Did you ask why the additional biopsy was necessary?

Never be afraid to ask why any procedure needs to be done. It saves a lot of worry between appointments.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hi Jolamine

Yes my boss is over the moon.   When she phoned, iii actually burst into tears, silly I know but it was the relief, I think.  

When my consultant phoned me, I was speechless, pleased to get a good result, but worried about what the pathologist had found.  I listened to what she said but couldn’t think of anything to say, other than ‘ok, I’ll wait to hear from you.   

Regards

Hi Polly,

Your reaction when the consultant phoned was pretty much as most of us would have reacted. This is why I always write down a list of questions before each appointment, as it is all too easy to forget important questions, when we are so up tight.

When your consultant phoned you wouldn't have known what he was going to say and you would have been caught off guard.

Here's hoping that you get that biopsy soon and, that with any luck, you get the same results as your boss.

Fingers crossed.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hi

I received a call this morning from the hospital, saying I need to go in tomorrow for my next biopsy, I’m having another suction core biopsy, the same as my last one, but this time I’m having to stay at the hospital for at least 4 hours afterwards.  I’ve had 3 biopsy’s and never had to stay at the hospital, I normally leave as soon as I’m dressed.   Am starting to get scared.  I’d just decided that I have to be brave and face this all head on, regardless of the results. This has knocked me back

 

regards

Hi Polly

You'll be glad to finally get your biopsy tomorrow. Don't be afraid to ask them why you have to stay in hospital for 4 hours after you have it.

I am not a medic, but I suspect that it could be because you've had another biopsy not that long ago. As a result of this, they may be expecting the possibility of a little more bleeding after this procedure. If they keep you in, they have medication to hand which can reduce or even stop this, so they are just being ultra cautious.

I am thinking of you and keeping my fingers crossed. Please update us once you know more. Remember that we are always here for you.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hi

Had my biopsy today.  The reason was, the pathologist had seen. Something on the mammogram done after the last biopsy was taken.  The reason I was asked to stay for 4 hours was due to the size of the biopsy.  Once everything was explained probably, I felt a lot more relaxed.   So it’s the waiting game again.  So fingers crossed 

Regards
