Re: Vacuum Biopsy

Thank you so much Brenda, that's put my mind at rest as the consultant told me it was horrible with lots of pain and bruising afterwards hence the query regarding my bra!!  Hope your results are favourable xx

Re: Vacuum Biopsy

Hi Helen,  I had a vacuum biopsy a couple of weeks ago and wore my bra immediately afterwards.  The test itself is not painful but the only short discomfort was the anaesthetic injection.  I had very little discomfort afterwards and had a bit of bruising.

Good luck.

Love, Brenda xxx

Vacuum Biopsy

Hi, I was diagnosed with grade 3 cancer last Thursday and have to have a vacuum biopsy this Friday as there is lots of calcification (dont really know what means).  Is this painful?? My consultant says its worse than the core biopsy??  Will I be able to put a bra on after the procedure or shall I just take a vest top??  Thanks in advance, Helen x
