Hi ladies. I waited 13 days for results from initial mammo, ultrasound and core biopsies then had repeat biopsies on lump and wire test on calcification and a further 9 day wait before getting the results last Thursday. I agree that waiting was just the worst experience ever. I only told a couple of people so needed to be 'normal' to most which was so tough. Although the results have shown both lump and calcification are BC in some ways it was a relief to finally know for sure and I've been calm since, no tears at all, even the Consultant said how calm I was! I have some waves of private panic but determined to stay strong and positive especially for my family. The hardest thing for me is telling my 3 lovely girlies, 2 who are at uni and one who is at home studying for AS levels, I know they will take it hard and really feel awful to do this to them. Tried to work out when best to tell them as they have exams and/or away so telling the youngest on Wednesday evening and the other 2 on Friday, poor things. These forums have been my saving grace, no issue is too trivial and everyone sadly knows exactly how you feel. Sending positive vibes and hugs to you all xxxx
It sounds like you weren't treated very well by the consultant. It's a hard time when you have to wait for results, the not knowing whether its anything to worry about or what will happen next. I would advise phoning the breast care nurse, it always helped me to talk to mine.
In my case nothing was apparent in the lymph nodes from the ultrasound but during surgery (mastectomy) they also did a sentinel lymph node biopsy, where they removed three of the lymph nodes to test for cancerous cells... they were clear.
Please talk to people on here, we've all been in a similar situation.
Good luck with the waiting and the results, I hope everything is ok for you xx
