First time I've posted too......
Hopefully by today you will have received your results and the news is good - let me know
I too am waiting for results following a biopsy on Tuesday. Last May I had a lumpectomy on my right breast, all went smoothly and I was just about settling down again. Had a follow up mammogram and now have a lump in my left breast! It's strange, but even though I have been through it once, I am no less terrified - possibly even more! I think the waiting is the worst - but the powers that be don't seem to realise the anguish this all causes ..
Hoping for good news for both of us!

Hi Maurie, I had a lumpectomy in May last year and everything went well - I, like you, was terrified of the procedure, the hospital and everything that went with it. The most difficult thing for me was not having anyone to really talk to who had been through this horror. I had another mammogram last week, 12 months down the line and I have a lump in my other breast. I too am terrified even though I know what will happen if it is cancerous. I had the scan and biopsy on Tuesday - this is the 2nd time for me and I can promise you I did not feel a thing or have any pain afterwards - just a slight bruise, a bit like you get when you have a blood test sometimes. The important thing is that you get it done - feel free to 'chat' to me anytime, omi.
