Waiting on breast biopsy results

Hi Karen,

I am delighted to hear that your results wee fine. Did the nurse say why they want to do more biopsies?  They wouldn't have said that your previous biopsies were fine, unless they were, so it sounds as if they are being extra cautious and still wanting to investigate the changes they've founfd.

I'm so glad to hear that you had a nice lunch and, I hope that you and your Mum enjoyed your afternoon in Edinburgh.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hi Freyafern,

A very warm welcome to our forum.I am glad to hear that you are due to get your biopsy results back within a week. The 7 day turnaround shouldn't give any indication of the results. This was the normal turnaround pre-Covid and, hospitals are trying to get back to this, because, as you've discovered, it can be an agonising wait. Please don't worry about the clips. This is routne procedure to show the area investigated. It makes it easier for a surgeon to identify the right area if s/he needs to proceed with surgery.

I am so sorry to hear about your sister. It always does feel surreal at this stage, but try to hang on to the positivity. Only 1 person in every 8 who attend the breast clinic gets a cancer diagnosis, so the odds are still stacked in your favour.

Please let us know how you get on on 15th. I sincerely hope that nothing untoward is found. Now that you have found this forum, you never need to feel alone. We are always here for you.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hi jolamine

Its a stereotactic biopsy they want to do this time,  i still think its a small area that is still to be investigated for 100% clearance, this machine seems to be more accurate by the sounds of it, but feel the biopsies that were clear why do more? so i feel theres still something they are checking, i said to the nurse on the phone what do you actually think she saidvi really cant call it, so im thinking is there something small they have missed or not got the exact area? I am pleased yesterdays were fine though but i think its the thought going through it all again, yeahbit was so nicevto meet up with my mum had a look in tbe charity shops got a nice coat, nice lunch, the sun was shining and had such a nice day, a white feather has just dropped at my feet as im messaging you god strike me down xxx

Hi KatenK1971 and Jolamine 

I called the breast clinic today to ask if I needed someone with me when I get my telephone call Friday 17th

Unfortunately my son has just started a new job. So I will be on my own, but because its a call I thought it be OK to be on my own

The nurse asked for my NHS number and then said could I go in face to face instead with a friend Friday xx hoping all will be OK xx

Hi KarenK1971

Hi

Yeah, my friend coming with me, it's strange,  I had a physio apt am hour ago, he has put my physio on hold.

I asked why and he said , the milk ducks if suspicious can spread quixkly and I understand they are fast tracking u and when they do a ct scan they will have a better idea????.. what was that about? Xx

Hi June, Your physio is correct. You are better to wait until you know what you are dealing with before having any further massage/physio. I had the same experience when I was first diagnosed 12 years ago. You certainly don't want to risk any spread at the moment. Kind regards, Jolamine xx

Hi Karen,

I know that this means more waiting and more worry. Not all results are as clear cut as they appear, but I am glad that your team are making sure that all is clear. If I were in your shoes, I would prefer my care team to do this, rather than dismiss something that could later prove to be probleatic.

I am so glad to hear that you had a good afternoon yesterday and that you treated yourself to a new coat. Hold on to that white feather. Hopefully, it's a reassuring sign.
