Stereotactic Breast Biopsy Info

Recently, my blog has been visited by more than a handful of women who are either approaching a stereotactic breast biopsy, or who have just experienced one and are researching the topic. As those of you who have been following this blog since 2008 (or earlier) know, I documented my experiences with the procedure in excruciating detail.

While at first I was concerned about the level of detail I shared here, it turns out that fellow patients are very glad that I did because they have not been adequately prepared for the experience. And how could they be? How many of the nurses and radiological surgeons have actually experienced the procedure? My guess is not many. I sincerely hope that fewer women need to go through this, although I'm glad of the clear results.

All that to say, I just thought I would provide all the links to the original series of posts on the topic in one post. This way, the facts and personal events I've shared are easy to locate.

As always, I encourage fellow travelers down this road to please share their experiences in the comments section. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Here are the links:

I had a similar experience and am still investigating why this happens and why anyone gets cancer in the first place, as convoluted of a topic as it is! Peace and prayers to you and healthy adventures.

Amazing how simple it can be to communicate with people and have them understand a certain topic, you made my day.

Thanks for your comments. Actually, it wasn't that simple. It took quite a while to write those pieces because I wanted to ensure that people understood what I experienced. Glad to have made your day, though.
