that phone call...

Well yes I got the dreaded phone call from my GP after my Mammogram and Ultra sound, so I went last Friday to see him and he told me there is something different and it was recommended for me to see a Breast surgeon.

So he told me to call and tell them it is urgent, got in on Monday morning and yes she agreed there is definitely a change.

Today is the day I am going to have two ultra sound guided core biopsy's, not sure how I feel about it...
I have had one many years ago and because at that time it all happened really quick it didn't worry me, but this time I have had time to think and worry.

I am lucky my DDIL is currently at the same Hospital ( for work, she is a Doctor ) and said would come to see me if I need her.
We had a good chat last night. You see I read the report for the Ultrasound and mammogram and in there was a word " neoplasm" I didn't know what it was, told my GP that I had read the report and he ask if I understood what the work mend, I said no and he said well: cancer.

My daughter in law corrected it last night and said it mend tumor and could be benign or maligned, so not quiet as definite.
Anyway I have quilts to make so all will be good.

Take care
Christine

ps. I wasn't going to post about it, but it is a little like talking about it and makes me feel a little better.

Hi Christine,
I have supported a girlfriend through this same situation over the past year. She is doing well
It is early days with the diagnosis for you. All I can say is stay positive; use your love as quilting as your support as much as your friends.
I'm not a praying person, but my fingers are crossed for you!
Best wishes,
Fay

Christine I am glad you posted about it. Good for you for going regularly and having the mammagrams! To see changes early is the whole goal in regular mammograms. Now if need be, you move forward and have it taken care of and be confident in that you are doing all you can. Stay positive, keep posting, cyber hugs and tons of prayers to you!

I hope all is well when you get the biopsy results. It is all scary stuff and talking about it does help, as I have found out myself this week.

Take care!

Christine you are going to be fine, stay positive you have us too send you happy vibes everyday...Its the unknown that is the scarey part and then the waiting i hate the waiting makes you think too much. I left my full time job and helped Mum with her Breast Cancer diagnosis but with love and strength and family, friends and bloggers we will get you through it if needed.


Sending you kisses and a big hug along the breeze to you.

Vicki W said...

I'm glad you have people around you who can talk to you intelligently about it. I didn't get the call. Instead my radiologist was a total bitch and told me I had cancer from the initial mammogram. She was wrong but she sure made 3 weeks of my life hell. All of my best wishes are with you and I hope your biopsy report is as good as the last one (and the 2 that I have had so far).

Jayne said...
