I’ve decided “whomped” is my word for how I felt overall yesterday.
Naturally the question has come up about the “negative” of the first biopsy. Well, here’s the poop.
My doctor was so apologetic. She says they should have said first biopsy was inconclusive. There were atypical cells and such a result did not match the MRI, thus the reasoning behind the second biopsy last week – needle biopsy of the axilla. It was also explained to me that the biopsy I had was in “one” area, in other words, the odds of not finding anything were very low but it was indeed possible to miss the cancer cells, and there is a likelihood that had the surgeon selected a different location, there would have been a different result.
I should know more tomorrow.
