I made an appt. with 2 surgeons for a 2nd opinion. I talked to the nurse again yesterday, and she said they have to refer me out if I want additional tests. She said it is standard protocol/procedure for birad 3 to wait 6 months (even if she doesn't agree!). She said she thought I was definitely doing the right thing. So she gave me the name of the surgeon they refer all there breast patients to (I see him the 29th) and I made an appt w/ the surgeon who did my thyroid (I see him the 26th), he does many breasts also. So,I will see if they recommend an MRI, Ultrasound, or whatever they would suggest. I guess depending on my appt Friday I may not even need the one on Monday. I am wondering what kinds of questions should I ask??? Any kind of preparation?? I don't want to leave there feeling lost!!! Any input would be great! Thanks again! :-) Also, does it matter what shape the lump is?? My report says it's "shaped like a kidney bean".
