I recently wrote about the doctor finding a lump in my breast. After a mammogram and ultrasound, it was determined that I needed to have a biopsy. I went to UAMS in Little Rock on Friday. I wasn’t really sure what to expect once I got there, but the doctors were amazing.
They looked at the films I had brought them and decided to go ahead and remove the entire lump and then test it… I could either schedule a day to come in and be asleep during the procedure, or they could do it that day and use a local anesthetic.
I chose to go ahead and get it over with. The doctor used a “mammotome” to remove the lump. The procedure didn’t take long and went really well. I had some pain in the area on Friday night and over the weekend. If I do a lot with my left arm, it starts to hurt. All-in-all, though, it wasn’t bad.
I heard from the doctor today, and my results showed no sign of malignancy. While I never doubted that would be the outcome, it was nice to actually hear it and it will be a relief for the rest of my family and friends!
