Hi Miarose....... Just wondering how you got on..... I'm in the same position you were in July, waiting for the letter/call to go back in for results..... Soooooo scared, waiting is chronic! Xxx
hope all going well. Xx
Hi - I think waiting for the results is the worst part. When I was having the biopsy the dr remarked that my lump was very close to the rib and gave me the impression she thought it was cancer, and I then spent a week with a feeling of doom hanging over me like a black cloud. I thought if it was close to the rib it would be in my bones. Waiting in the hospital to see the surgeon I thought I might be sick, I just felt I knew exactly what he was going to say, and he did! But he reassured me it does not get into the bones that way. I had WLE a week later and tumour is all gone but have more DCIS. I'd had DCIS a few years ago as well so this time got the choice of WLE again or mastectomy. Once I knew what was happening I suddenly felt relieved as I knew exactly what was going to happen. Having simple mastectomy in 3 weeks. Nothing has ever been as bad as that week between the biopsy and the results - the imagination goes into overdrive. You feel more in control when you know what's going to happen. I have never had that sick feeling again since and I'm sure you will find that the uncertainty is by far the worst bit. Best of luck for your results.
