Thank you all for responding....it means so much to me. Been trying to be so positive but sometimes it is hard! I will be coming back and letting everyone know my progress!....no offense, however, I really DON'T want to be part of this club!!!! wish all of you didn't belong.
However knowing that there are careing people is a big comfort to me!
The placing of the radioactive seed is new...its just so the dr can locate lesion with a giger type counter...it is removeed with the lesion!
I will be watching for the Pink Bus! hugs to allView Thread
thank you so much for responding! I was feeling badly that no one had! My appoint is in NY Memorial Sloan at 8a.m. monday 9/17....this has been going on since july 27th...feels like forever.
the seed is placed just for location of the lesion and than removed immediately with lesion....in excisional biopsy...9 days for results!
It is so scary not knowing....I am prepared to march ahead and fight this if it turns out to be malignant. Just really annoyed dr. mmissed with the stero tactic biopsy...but she was honest with me and thats the upside of this.
Again thank you so much for responding! will be looking for Pinky!View Thread
Hi had sterotactic biopsy in july the dr. missed the lesion. what tissue they did get was benign Now on Monday scheduled for wide excisional biopsy at sloan kettering in manhattan.
Of course, I am concerned....but trying to be optimistic, its been the entire summer! seems everyone goes on vacation in august.....pls say prayers.
They are inserting a small radioactive seed in the breast by a radiologist, than they will use a small giger counter to locate seed and than remove lesion and seed. Has anyone had this proceedure? Any information will be appreciatedView Thread
