Mom and I went to work in my classroom today because if I had to sit around my house waiting for the doctor to call I would lose my mind. We painted a bookshelf with some "oops" paint from Home Depot (only $1.00 a can!) and reinforced another bookshelf and stayed busy while waiting for the phone to ring.
So after a while my doctor called, but I still don't have a definite answer. ARGH! She said that the tissue samples they took from me are "most likely" benign, but the radiologist is "concerned" about the shape, size, pattern, or something about the tissues. He thinks it might be some kind of something or other that might indicate precancerous cells. She used a really big word and I didn't have my medical thesaurus handy to translate.
I have to go see a breast surgeon specialist at another hospital tomorrow morning (after stopping by the other hospital first to pick up my films) for a consultation. She will compare the biopsy with the mammogram films and decide whether or not she'll need to perform surgery to excise the lesions.
Gee, a breast surgeon who makes her living performing breast surgeries. Hmmm, what are the odds that she'll recommend that I need one of those? I wonder.
Anyway, keep those prayers coming while the fun continues. Thanks.
