Re: Biopsy fears

I think its a protective mode for them, they cant fix this and its hard for them to deal with so trying to pretend its all just fine is easier! I know just how you will be feeling , no matter how confident they are at the hospital that all will be well you cant help the nagging doubt from creeping in and you most certainly are not pathetic!

Re: Biopsy fears

I know !!! I am trying to keep positive but inside, I just feel sick. It's the not knowing that I hate, I feel completely out of control with it. I love him dearly but OH makes me feel like a hypochondriac. I feel completely pathetic. Xx

Re: Biopsy fears

hi Rach,
Well, you both are right in a way!
OH is right in that worrying wont change anything, but no matter how straightforward these investigations are, its hard to escape the anxiety when in the middle of it, in fact it would be odd not to be.
Its good though that you consultant is being thorough though.
Be a little bit angry with him if you want to, you are entitled!!

Biopsy fears

Hi all.

Went for my routine annual checkup (history of parental breast cancer and me with lumpy boobs) MRI this time instead on mammogram. Arrived for results tonight and got sent straight to ultrasound for biopsy of changed area and then markers inserted. Consultant not overly concerned but wants to be 100% sure all ok. I am not allowed to worry according to OH as it's a waste of time and energy. Am I right to be a little bit angry with him 😳😳
