Just thought i would postin case there anyone out there needing this procedure. Yesterday i was having a biopsy as mammogram came back unclear. First had more xrays done at different angles to see if clearer. Mammogram itself is uncomfortable, a lot pressure applied and a pulling sensation, but not painful. Pain in shoulders and neck from holding position while x rayed. A lot of standing still, painful on knees. A lot of sitting in between procedures (painful for me, cocydenia ). Then the actual biopsy, mammogram again so they find correct area, then injection into correct area ofbreast. Check xray again then machine (a bit noisy) automatically takes 4 biopsies, feeling ofpressure not pain. Whole thing took about 4 hours , felt rather shaky at the end of it, as well as in pain from fibro and athritis, breast felt tender. When injection wore off later breast started to feel bruised. On arriving home went straight to bed, exhausted. This morning breast feels quite bruised and tender and i am exhausted, but arm,shoulder, neck and legs very painful. Nurses and doctors very efficient explained all procedures throughout day. Basically, the fibro, as usual, was the most painful part. No need to be scared of this procedure at all, results in a weeks time. Hope this is a clear explanation. (It has taken a lot of corrections!)
