Awaiting my biopsy results :-(

Hello folks,


I was diagnosed with DCIS in November of 2016 it was a very agressive tumour that grew rapidly to 11.6cm, ended up with a mastectomy/reconstruction and reduction on my other breast. I had my yearly mammogram , and they found a cyst which was goodish news. Then i was called back to say it looked a bit suspect, after a Stereotactic biopsy of 18 samples(ouch) I now have a long wait till next Thursday till i get my results. I’m on full on panic mode and trying to write down questions etc. Main 1 being why did’nt you take off my other breast when i asked about it ,
