Re: Breast clinic

My husband was with me throughout the various tests apart from the room where the mammogram was done (because of radiation exposure).  He was in the ultrasound room with me and when the core biopsy was taken and when we talked to the consultant and breast care nurse.

 

If you want him with you make sure you ask.  Unfortunately staff sometimes forget to ask or assume that the husband/partner/companion doesn't want to accompany the patient into the various rooms.

 

All the very best for your breast clinic appointment.

Re: Breast clinic

Hi Emma

 

good to hear you have some support, he won't be allowed in when you get the tests but will be allowed in the room when you're with the doctor, at least that's what happened when I was at the clinic.

 

I hope they can give you good news tomorrow.  Fingers crossed.

Re: Breast clinic

Hi emma19

 

So sorry to hear you are having this horrible wait, after just having gone through a really bad time at Christmas then this.  Most lumps are not cancer but until you know the waiting is just torture.

 

I hope you have someone to help you with the wait and go with you tomorrow.   Fingers crossed for you tomorrow.

 

take care
