I went for my biopsies last week, not one of 3 was any good...so now they have to do a core biopsy with the aid of an ultra sound.
 
I am so scard.....the thin needle wasnt pleasant, I don't know what to expect with this one...

I just wish they could take the lump out biospy it in the or and do what they have to do....

Yeah I am wondering why they don't just do the lumpectomy, too. Maybe because of your other health problems they don't want to give you anesthesia unnecessarily? I feel badly that you are going through all this, and hope that soon you will have some answers. Life is never fair, is it? Hugs MK

I e-mailed my doctor with this question
she said that..if it is cancer, then they will have to remove the lump but will also have to remove the "margin"
And lymph nodes.
If it is not cancer they will just remove the lump....but they do not want to have to go in 2 times.
So the core needle biopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
Mri on Monday.
 
Yes, life is un-fair sometimes, I know what I have to do if it is cancer....I am just tierd...tierd of being sick and tierd, esp when I was finally starting to feel better using Humira for the Crohns disease made such a difference in my quality of life.I felt like a new person....Now this.  It's like as soon as I beat one thing, another is right there in my face.... like, not so fast missy.
But, like my mom says grab your boot straps and get ready to fight like I always have.
 
IT's just hard...people keep telling me to get my mind off it until monday...to have a good week-end and forget it.
that is NOT so easy.  Esp, when I have this darn pain in my back right where the lump is in front...it is the same location of where the lump is but in my back..and a constant reminder.  Plus all these crazy things are going through my mind, like maybe it has spread to my back or lungs....I know I have to stop thinking like this...AND God knows I am trying.
