So pleased to hear that your biopsy was all clear in the end! I hated the uncertainty too. Now that it is over I have been wondering about the fact that i got called back so quickly (compared to other people on this forum who have had quite a wait). At the time it made me more worried!
Today was my birthday. I got home to find the dreaded letter. I have to go to a different hospital (Barts, London) on Friday to have another mammogram and maybe more. I am scared. I am hoping that it is just that the screening didn't show clear enough results. My breasts are fairly small and the woman who did the mammogram did seem to have some trouble in getting the images done. My discomfort on the left side is now feeling more noticeable because i am thinking about it. i hadn't even noticed it.
It could still just be a cyst. My friend and I both had recall letters with an appointment for the same day. She just had a cyst but I had a grade 2 cancer. 12 months later I am back to normal, no pain, few side-effects from Anastrozole and it all feels like it happened to someone else.
Fingers crossed that your outcome will be 'just a cyst' - but if it isn't you've come to the right place for support..
I (like all of us) know what you mean about a few days seeming like an eternity away.
I had a recall letter on new years eve for an appointment that morning. The post had been delayed due to the snow so I had missed the appointment and had to reschedule for the next week.
You will get through the weekend though it may be tough depending on what you have planned, who you are with and whether they know what you are going through.
Be gentle with yourself and good luck on Monday.
