Excisional biopsy

Good morning to all!

Had my excisional biopsy yesterday and I have to say it wasn't as bad as my mind was imagining it to be. LOL The pain isn't too bad at all, so far.

When the nurse in the xray dept (for wire localization) was reading thru my chart, she did say this had to come out. After reading everything I have researched on ALH, I must say that I had to agree with her.

Now it's the wait that's the killer. I don't go back to breast doctor until next week.

This has all been quite an ordeal, needless to say. BUT a big thank to all of you for your advice. Have a great day...

Glad to hear all went smoothly with little discomfort. (That was also my experience when I had one, but as each of us is different, you never can be sure. I do know that almost always [won't say always as it might tempt the fates! > my worries far exceed the reality!)

Yes, waiting is the pits, but know we are here for any support which we can offer during the wait. Please let us know what the plan is and we will all board the Pink Bus to escort you!

Always listen for what is silent and see what is invisible...That's where miracles hide, and it can make all the difference!

I had 5 excisional biopsies within 8 yrs and still not metastasis; use alternative medicine with it, and follow advice of Life Extension Foundation (see articles on Breast Cancer and Metastasis). Have regional or local anesthesia, consume modified citrus pectin powder, avoid sugar and red meat, eat organic when possible, and search internet for alternative ways to treat breast cancer; I avoided radiation and chemo. even with 1.5cm tumors and smaller.
