Brief backstory - went to GP who decided I was being a little too blasé about changes to breast sensation. Rapid Referral to which Doc didn’t think anything at all. Mammogram anyway and to come back for US. Went back 2 days later for US to be told by Radiographer that needed magnified views as microcalcification. But probably wouldn’t need biopsy. 2 days later told nope actually do need core biopsy.
As a Staff Nurse I understand fully the need to rule out anything sinister but finding it difficult to cope with the ‘actually no it’s not as fine as we thought’ aspect at every stage. Did anybody else experience the swing in feelings of ‘that’s it, I’ve got breast cancer’ to ‘don’t be so dramatic, the chances are high it’s benign’ and finally ‘I have no right to be over reacting and worrying everyone when it’s probably all for nothing’.
Feel like I’m actually losing my marbles and in complete lack of control. I’d be grateful for any advice on how you’ve dealt with the results waiting time and if my swinging moods are ‘usual’.
Oh the joys of breast tissue eh??
