Hey everyone....looks like I passed PET/CT scan. The only thing they found was cyst on my ovaries (I'm sure those will be next on the list to remove).
I have to be at AGH outpatient by 7:00A.M. tomorrow.
Needle localization is sceduled for 8:30A.M.
Surgery is scheduled for 10:30A.M.
Champaign uncorking, my house, 6:00P.M.!!!!! Everyone invited!!!
They said yes to the xanax !!! Wooo hooo....I'm living it up now!!!

    PAMMY.........
    GOOD LUCK SWEETIE and God Bless............you will be in my prayers today!

    Don't worry about the needle localization......I worried myself sick about that part, more so than the surgery itself........It wasn't much at all, I swear! Make sure they numb it first, I'm sure they will, and then you just feel a slight pressure ........they"ll "mammo" it to make sure it is placed correctly and you're good to go!

    Again, best of luck and God Bless.....

    Pammy,
    You'll do just fine. The needle localization isn't bad (they numbed my boob before) ... and then after they finished inserting the wire ... they gave me a very gentle mammogram to be sure everything was in the right place ...and they told me not to look at the wire (even though it had a bandage over it). Guess they knew I was a weenie and figured if I looked at it I'd freak out ... and I probably would have.

    I had my needle localization at one center and then had to go to the hospital for the lumpectomy. As the nurse was putting the bandage on ... she was telling me how ... not too long ago they didn't cover the wire with a bandage ... they used a paper cup! Can you imagine? It was embarrassing enough trapesing around from the center to the hospital in one of those darling hospital gowns ... but I can't imagine doing it with a paper cup sticking out of your boob.

    Anyway ... you'll do just fine ... and no doubt have your own story to tell when it's over. And we want to hear your story. Let us know how you're doing.

    hugs.

    You'll be fine.
    Good luck tomorrow, Pammy. Take that xanax and remember that by tomorrow night it will all be over and you can start on that graphic novel for us!

    CONGRATS!
    Those PET/CT scans do scare you, don't they? But, you got great perfect results! So, congrats Pammy!

    I, as the others here, wish you the best tomorrow, as I have posted elsewhere on here. You will be in our thoughts and prayers!

    And, take the xanax, it will help you. So, champagne at your house at 6? Cya then!

    Love, Jeanne

    Xanax... see I never get the
    Xanax... see I never get the good stuff.... never...never... never... Maybe I should move... Will have to speak to the hubby about that.. I want dreams, leg mesages, and xanax!!!!!

    Seriously... Pammy... I am thinking about you.. I am wishing you the best tomorrow, so glad that the PET scan came back clear that is wonderful news. You will be in my thoughts as usual tomorrow, and in my prayers... I know you'll do great. Hang in there and get on here to give us the details when you can...

    Last night while I was showering in the antibacterial soap and the "eppi cleanse" I had to have my husband hand me my razor.. surger this morning and I just had to make sure to shave the stubbles away... call me crazy... (so are you shaving today??).lol.. just checking to see if someone is really as strange as I am!

    Love and hugs..

    Absolutely!!
    As you can see....I will be up all night (repeat of Monday). I will hop in shower about in 3 more hours. This will most definitly include shampoo, condition, bodywash, shaving, trimming toenails, plucking eyebrows, brushing teeth, flossing, trim any noticable nose hairs, ear hairs, chest hair, filing nails (ok...maybe not all of these things...I flossed yesterday, I can probably skip that part!!). I think I mostly do all this to get thru the evening. Not buying that huh? OK.....shhhhh.....don't tell hubby....but I saw a couple really HOT dudes running around that hospital and you never know if one of them will be the one covering my naked body with that nice warm blanket.....now, which victoria's secret scent should I wear? So.....who do you think is stranger (he,he)? Glad you made it!!! :) Pammy
