At the rate things are going, it’s going to be 6 months before I get any results on this complex cyst in my left breast.
If I did not have a history of breast cancer, when I had my mammogram on December 19, 2012, the breast care center radiologist would have suggested I come back in 6 months to do a follow-up mammogram/ultrasound. However, since I do have a history, she recommended an ultra sound guided biopsy. No big deal–just get a biopsy and the results and come up with a plan one way or the other. Easier said than done, apparently. Biopsy didn’t happen until Friday (5.5 weeks after the mammo) with results expected back yesterday or today. Being a good patient I called to follow-up at about 4:30 this afternoon–and was told that my surgeon would call me back after he had finished with his patients. It’s now 8:30PM and I’ve still not heard back from him.
It’s hard to be non-reactive about all of this.
