Here we go....First the good news...My left breast seems fine. The lump my doctor felt is just the valve to my implant.Great news. I was feeling pretty good, Then I heard the but. It always starts with a but doesn't it?So here is where the road goes a bit crooked...
I took a deep breath, wiped my tears away and tried clicking my heels 3 times. It didn't work. I was still there. So off I was with a bunch of crazy, flying monkeys! Looking down from where I was dangling my hope was seriously a little dashed.
But another trip to the boob squasher it was.This time I was mentally singing,"Patti Cake Patti Cake, Bakers Men, Squish Me A Boob As Fast As You Can!"
So finally all the testing was done and I was just sitting there in my robe. Thankfully my mom was there when they asked if I had anyone there with me. By chance my parents had an appointment in the same area and had decided to come by and wait for me.
After about 10 minutes the doctor/radiologist came back into the room and looked me straight in the eyes.I have been at this long enough to know when a doctor is about to derail the train you're on. So again I took a deep breath and did my best to exhale...
Here's the news:I have 2 area of concern. Both on the right breast. The one furthest away is the one I have been aware of for some time. Mostly pain, but at times I have been able to feel a lump. The other is closest to the nipple area. Both are calcification's. The thing worrying the doctor is the pattern they are following. One is jagged and the other is a perfect twin to the mass found on my left breast 3 years ago. You know the one with breast cancer stamped all across it? Oh the ways of the beast! What a tango she leads us through on the dance floor.
OK what next? Well, this is how it is going to go:I will have a stereotactic breast biopsy .This one will pinpoint the exact location of a breast mass by using a computer and x-rays taken from two different angles. Then I will have an ultrasound guided biopsy. I have chosen to have both on the same day. This way I am not going in twice nor am I having to wait any longer for results.
So now we hurry up and wait. How do I feel? Numb to be exact. Funny I thought I was a rock. Hum.. I sure sank like one though lol. All I can do now is pray and wait. I am not beaten, just bruised a bit.My hair is a mess and my clothes are a bit wrinkled. My loyal friends, bless them are still to each side of me. I have to admit though... I am shaking. The good news?I am holding these ruby slippers tight on my toes in hopes I am really getting back home by clicking them soon. Still I can see the wicked witch sneering at me. Just wait till I throw this bucket of water all over her!
Oh no she didn't!
Oh no you don't, silly sour green lady.
I am so ready to burst out in song. people!
All together now..."Ding Dong, the Wicked Witch is dead!"
