Betty, you have no idea how pleased I am for you!!!
As I said before, anxiety is a powerful thing... it takes over lives... Time to get on with your life now, with this worry behind you.
Great, great news!
Best wishes for your very bright future, love Mel. xxx
it's hard not to be anxious. Anxiety is a perfectly normal reaction to what you're going through. If you're suffering very badly, can your doctor give you something to help you through?
It's very hard to think positive thought right now, but do remember this:
1) You went for your mammogram appointment
2) You got through it
3) Your surgeon is 95% certain it's a cyst
4) If that is the case, then that's it! Nothing more to worry about.
Anxiety is a very powerful thing. I coped by doing things like puzzles and crosswords; any games that would occupy my brain. That, along with some medication to keep me on the straight and narrow...
Do whatever you need to, to get through tomorrow. It'll all be worth it, I promise. And, as I discovered, even if the news isn't so good, it's much better once you know. Even if you have cancer, it's a great relief to find out, and then move forward onto a treatment plan.
By the sounds of it, you have nothing to worry about, so try and stay focused and deal with things a step at a time.
Best of luck, Mel.
