My Boobs — Update

I’m getting lots of calls, emails, tweets, etc about my boob situation. Since this blog is my more girly, personal site where I blog about fitness and stuff, it seems appropriate to use this space for updates so I won’t have to type the same thing over and over.

Here’s the lowdown…and if you are still reading, thank you for caring. I have a spot…an area of soreness under my right boob. I’ve had two mammograms and one ultrasound and as a result my gyno doctor ordered me to see a surgeon to discuss my options. Basically, she told me I had to have a biopsy — they stick a long needle into your boob — on VALIUM only. I said no deal. I want to be put under. Period. I didn’t like the way her staff treated me when I checked in. They were totally rude…well not all of them but the one at the front desk. I didn’t like the way the surgeon talked to me. She was not rude but she didn’t seem to understand me.

So, I called a friend who has been through this, and she recommended that I go to a second doctor in Cincy, which is what I’m doing next Thursday.

That is all.

Thanks for your prayers! 🙂 Oh, and P.S. My sweet sister, Jan, had Breast Cancer in her 40’s. That is why they are being so cautious about ruling it out.
