Glad of was of some use to someone!
I too am at the clinic on Christmas Eve, 08.55am! And here is me thinking I would get a lie in on my first day of holidays.
I am just in for my annual check, mammogram and scan, but wish they had given me another date. Still at least I will have the rest of the day to myself. Otherwise I might have been in bed at lunchtime.
Once again, good luck. I will be routing for you.
I've had a couple of core biopsys and they are not painfull, they apply a local anasethetic. You may be a little tender for a day or so, but hardly anything. I would suggest you have someone to drive you home afterwards.
I just stressed out a little both times and was a bit wobbly! But thats just me - a big scaredy cat, without cause!
