Here's the lowdown:
- Mammogram in December
- Results from Radiologist: "Come back in six months"
- OB/GYN office calls Jan. 2: Advise second opinion
- See boob man surgeon Jan. 14: Recommends biopsy
The weird part is that I've been smelling the lidocaine slowly being expelled from my body for the last 24 hours. And it doesn't smell very good.
This was a stereotactic biopsy, meaning you are awake and no scalpel. The surgeon just (just!?) bores a little hole down (deep down) into your tissue so that he can withdraw a sample of the tissue in question.
I am sore and bruised. I am taking prescriptions for antibiotics and hydrocodone, one I take twice a day and the other, not so often. Guess which? (Only a joke.)
I am back at work today. I get the results next Tuesday. I am scared. Curt is only three.
