Gone Baby Gone

When someone had a negative breast MRI in June, it is very hard to fathom how one is supposed to undergo a MRI-directed core biopsy in July. What tissue does one biopsy when there was nothing abnormal seen on the breast MRI (the definitive test) in the first place?

This morning, after being stuck back into the MRI tube, the radiologist who was to perform the core biopsy finally gave me the words I had been waiting two months to hear, “There’s nothing there for me to biopsy. You’re OK.”

You hear that folks? The rollercoaster has finally pulled back into the station so that I can get off. Whatever the guy saw on the mammogram is gone baby gone.

I haven’t heard from Dr. Dahlia yet, but Dr. Radiologist-Who-Makes-Sense suggests a repeat mammogram in 6 months as follow up. Now who was it who suggested that course of action last week? Oh right. That would have been me.

Please don’t think that I’m not thankful and grateful. I certainly am. I’m just stuck on the chain of illogic that got me to the place of almost being stuck in the breast with a needle this morning. And that relates to the first two questions of my post. If the June MRI was truly negative, then what the heck were they going to find today on MRI to biopsy?

But for now I’ll work on letting that go. What’s important is that this crisis has been averted and I get to enjoy this weekend with my family and friends…and lots of alcohol.


Thanks for all your support!

    Not to say “I told you so” but I did. Actually, you did. Glad you (we) were finally proven right without your actually having to be perforated.

    Have a nice weekend.

    I’d count any day where a needle isn’t put in my in my breast as an awesome day! So relieved they didn’t find anything, and relieved that you went in and now know beyond a certainty that there isn’t anything there.
