There is nothing like having an anxiety attack before going in for surgery. To be more precise, a panic attack before an exisional biopsy.
Yep. I was okay laying on the gurney and having the nurse ask me questions. I was okay until she stuck the IV in and it finally hit me that I was about to be put under for only the third time in my life for something that is pretty scary.
Two hits of versed later, I don’t remember crap. LOL
Which is a blessing.
I’m told I have stitches inside my breast where the “lumps” were removed and I’ve been super glued shut on the outside. In all, it doesn’t look nearly as bad as when they did the stereotactic biopsy on the left one. Very little bruising and moderate pain. I can’t lift anything heavier than 10 pounds for the next 14 days, but I’ll deal with it.
It’s the funky velcro bra that’s truly annoying.
