I had my biopsy on a Friday and went back to work on Monday. I had two lumps removed. They did incision at he edge of the areola, and by the time I had surgery a few weeks later, you couldn't tell where the surgery was done. If they take out much tissue, you may have a slight depression for awhile, but it eventually will fill in. I had another biopsy on my remaining breast a few years later. I have about a 1 1/2 inch scar from that one. I took Tylenol with codeine the day of the surgery. After that, didn't need anything. I had no restrictions on lifting. I work with infants and toddlers with disabilities, so I do quite a bit of lifting in my job... the babies don't weigh a lot, but those toddlers can pack on the pounds! LOL
Hope you get benign results. Let us know when your surgery is. We'll send good thoughts your way.
