I had a bibopsy yesterday. Remember that lump I mentioned finding? Well my Doctor wanted me to look into it further and I was sent to get an ultrasound on the breast where the lump is.
Remember being pregnant and going in for your ultrasound? Remember being nervous knowing that if the ultrasound tech said “excuse me” or “I’ll be right back” something was wrong?
Well, my ultrasound tech said “Excuse me, I’ll be right back.” So I knew right away she saw something.
The Doctor came in, introduced herself and said “yup, there’s definitely something there… I’m gonna have you come back so we can biopsy it.”
Two grueling weeks is how long I had to wait for my “authorization to go through,” I could have been fuckin’ dying while I wait. I think there’s needs to be some prioritizing going on whereas if someone is in need of something like a biopsy for something possibly cancer related, their authorization is expedited- just sayin’.
Anyway, yesterday was biopsy day and the Doc said I took it like a champ- no flinching or anything.
I got some great advice from the one and only Shannon Tweed- Gene Simmons sorta/kinda wife of 26 years. “Breathe deep” is what she told me. I have to say, though, seeing the episode of Gene Simmons Family Jewels where Shannon went in for her biopsy and allowed cameras really prepared me for what was going to happen. I knew there’d be two needles for anesthesia and I knew there’d be the big needle- which would make a loud popping noise. The only thing that my Doctor did differently is that she took three samples of my breast tissue instead of one. That was a powerful episode and very informative- allowing women (and men) who may need a breast biopsy to know what to expect.
I’m kind of having an allergic reaction to the local anesthetic they gave me. It’s annoying. Last night I was so itchy and didn’t really sleep well, then woke up this morning with swollen areas all about my body. Fun!
Doc wanted me to go into Urgent Care to receive some sort of injection- but with the 15 month old, that’s not someplace I want to be. Sitting in Urgent Care with people spreading their germs? Uhh no. So I took Benadryl instead… which worked, but is now wearing off and I am starting to itch again.
The Tech said the lab usually gets the information to you in a few days and I should hope to hear from my Doctor by Friday… well today’s Wednesday, so, we will see.
Keep those prayers comin’, I really appreciate it!
