An update

After a slew of scans (multiple mammograms, ultrasounds, and an MRI) and a biopsy, it has been determined that I have 2 masses that need to be surgically removed. Surgery will be on Tuesday (outpatient).

On a positive note, my surgeon says that all preliminary indications are that both masses are benign. However, I'll wait till I get back my pathology to really celebrate.

And that's the news that is the news...

Was just thinking about you this morning while getting ready for the day and was praying for a good outcome for you. So glad to hear the encouraging news but can understand why you would want to wait. Take a big deep breath.

Will be praying for good test results! Spoil yourself Monday before you have to go NPO and eat something decadent! You deserve it.

I was wondering if you'd heard anything - was thinking about you and going to try to find your other post about this that I hadn't yet responded to. It's good to hear that he thinks they are benign - we will celebrate with you when you find out that is the case. Thoughts and prayers for you.

I know you have had an emotional ride with this issue, but glad that the surgery can be done outpatient.

Will be praying that all the path is good news.
