The Breast Quest #8

My aspiration that was scheduled for next Friday (April 27) was moved up to today. The imaging center called me at 10 am and wanted to know if I could come in today at noon. Not a lot of notice, but due to some scheduling conflicts, I went ahead and decided to take the appointment today in case next week's gets cancelled and I end up having to wait several more weeks.

To make a long story short, they were unable to aspirate it because it's solid. I saw it on the ultrasound screen and it looks like a lima bean. Never did like lima beans...yuck!

The radiologist recommends a biopsy and less than an hour after I left the imaging center, the surgeon's office was calling me. The surgeon wants to see me to discuss our next step.

My appointment is on Wednesday.

Hopefully, I will find out which direction the surgeon will want to go. It's my understanding that there are different methods of doing a biopsy.

Now, I'm feeling sore and tender from the aspiration attempt today.

More to come after Wednesday!

The Breast Quest #7

Called the surgeon's office today as it completely slipped my mind to call them on Friday...I have my appointment for my aspiration. It's scheduled for April 27. I find this very amusing as that was the original date that I was supposed to see the first surgeon for the consultation.

Stay tuned...our sassy and spunky heroine is very happy to learn that she can eat and drink prior to the procedure. Hmmm...perhaps a frozen strawberry margarita...
