Waiting on results...

Post by tkoslo on Mon Aug 08, 2016 10:57 am

I am sitting on my sofa here waiting to go see the doctor to find out about a breast biopsy I had on Thursday. I haven't said anything online because I don't want my family to get all upset if there isn't anything wrong. Since I have had thyroid cancer, I am always so afraid of getting cancer again. I know that mammograms are supposed to catch things early, so whatever this is will hopefully be easy to fix. I am praying it is just normal calcification. I have spent the last few days panicking, but trying not to show it on the outside. I know some of you understand this feeling. My appointment is at 1 p.m. and I feel like I should just go park myself in their office until then. But, I don't want them to think I am crazy. So, please say a prayer for me and for everyone else suffering the waiting game. I think it might be harder than the actual process of getting things better!

Tonya , I am sending you prayers.

I have had to go in for diagnostic mammogram and sonogram twice. I empathized with the waiting and trying to act like nothing is wrong.

Your friend, Laurie

So, I don't have cancer. But I do have something called atypical ductal hyperplasia which is pre-precancer. I have not been able to really wrap my head around this yet. I am seeing a surgeon tomorrow. They recommend having not quite a lumpectomy but more than a biopsy?/? I guess I will know more late tomorrow afternoon. I am going to try not to read to much online about it because I am sure there are always bad stories. I am trying to keep happy over this. It was not cancer, but I am still scared. Thanks for the prayers and thoughts, ladies!

Things are going so quickly! My surgery is set for this Monday at 8:30 a.m. I will have the lumpectomy and my slides will be sent to the Mayo Clinic to determine 100% if there are/are not any cancer cells present. My doctor said none were present in the slides from the biopsy, so that is usually correct. She does not want me to take Tamoxifen (which I am very glad because of all the side effects) unless something comes back from Mayo different. I will now have to have a breast MRI at 6 months and alternate that with a 3-D mammogram for the rest of my life (or until something better comes along)! I fully believe that this 3D mamo is what caught this so early...it was my first 3D. I had to pay a $60 copay to do it versus the regular for $0, but it could be saving my life. Thanks for your continued prayers, ladies!

Tonya - I just went through the exact same thing. My husband was working in MN and I had to share with him over the phone. It was nerve wracking to say the least. Mine turned out to not be cancer, but I've got to have a follow-up mammogram in six months. I'm glad you don't have cancer, but sorry you are having to go through this on Monday. My thoughts and prayers are with you, as I know this has to be scary. I'll be having the 3D one next time. Stay strong and know you are thought of with sincerity. Hugs, Debbie

Thanks for everyone's prayers and good wishes! I had a great weekend scrapbooking with my mom for Crop for a Cure. We had lots of fun and laughs. I have tried not to let my mind wander too much. I feel that everything will go well tomorrow and I pray that the cells they take out will also be cancer-free.

Hugs to everyone and prayers that your health struggles will get easier as well!

Thanks for your prayers!! I am home now with a very big ice pack on the girl. Have to wear a bra 24/7 for the next 3 days. The doctor was pretty sure it will not be cancer but she still had to send it off. I am off to rest now. I will catch up tomorrow with the swaps Hugs, Tonya
