Very scary stuff

Today was the day I had to go back for a second mammogram. They took more pictures and did an ultrasound. The results were unclear.

They are concerned about a thickening under the right breast. I did have reduction surgery in 2004, so it may just be scar tissue. However, to be on the safe side, they recommended a biopsy.

It is scheduled for Thursday morning, and I won't have the results until Monday.

This is going to be a great week...can I have a cigarette now?

I would bet anything it's just scar tissue. That's very common with any kind of breast surgery.

You know I'm thinking of you and I'm so glad we talked this morning. I wish the biopsy was Wednesday so you wouldn't have to wait all weekend. But I agree with J. that it's probably scar tissue. They just want to be on the safe side.

Love you.
