Hi Beth, Juju and Lori
Juju I dont know what they did to you but Im far from a baby and I wanted to cry like one!!! My radiologist warned me ahead of time she said that they used to give a local ahead of time but found that it interfears with results. I sqeeezed the mamo techs hand so hard I thought I would break it. Im not a small person either 5'9. I dont know why they cant do it after the general kicks in too. I will NEVER have that done again unless medicated. I have had 2 children over 10lbs with no meds but those shots hurt!
I still dont have results from the lumph nodes, my Dr called yesterday and I missed her call I called her back and she had left for the day and is off today. I have called 2 times today trying to get info but none yet. I have a feeling that at least some have cancer but will deal with it when it comes.
Can I ask all of you a question????? I still have not cried since learning that I have cancer. That cant be normal, I must be holding everything in. I thought for sure I would when I got the "cancer" diagnosis but nothing. I know when it comes I will probably be a bursting dam.:)
Beth I had to laugh when you said you almost canceled your surgery because of the injection, I felt that way when it took 2 nurses and 4 times to get my Iv in. My whole hand is bruised pure black and blue. The first nurse went through the vain and then tryed again there was blood everywhere and still she tried again. It has been 4 days now and Im still just a little sore but not horrible. The worst part is that my breast is smaller than the other by quite a bit, but no complaining at least for now it is still there.
Hugs to all
