Tomorrow's Breast surgery cancelled


5 posts in this topic

I am not very happy :57_cry: about this last minute news I just got at 4 pm today. My tomorrow 7:30 am Breast reduction and FNG schedule has been cancelled. Now I have to schedule a Breast biopsy instead. They are saying I have a lump in my right breast. I am sure it is a fatty cyst but they will not do the surgery until the biopsy is done and comes back stating it is a cyst. I have had these cyst many times over the course of my 61 years and now that I am less than 24 hours before surgery they want to do a biopsy. Doesn't make sense to me. I had to do a lot of things to prepare for this including get substitute teachers and make up weeks of lessons plans, reports etc not to mention all the medical supplies and house cleaning and food prep etc and now it is not happening tomorrow.

So sorry for you. I can only imagine how upset you are right now. Hopefully knowing that the doctors have put your health as a priority makes it slightly if at all better. Stay positive and good will come your way!!!

Ugh, what a total pile of hosresh*t. I understand why they did it, but still. Here is wishing you luck with a speedy turnaround for the biopsy so you can get the reduction and be the you that you deserve!

It seems that between the insurance company and the Doctors involved no body was getting any of the information straight as to whether I needed approval and which doctor I was to go to see. So tomorrow is a consultation with a breast surgeon to look over my test results and see what he is going to do. I have to be there at 8 am. Hopefully after this consultation a date will be set for this biopsy. Come the 20th it will have been a month since my breast lift was canceled.

I have an update for my friends who are interested in knowing what has been going on. I had the consultation and was sent with all my mammograms and ultra sounds to the breast institute, filled out the paperwork. One week later they finally gave me a date for my breast biopsy. May 8th. It will be 8 weeks since I first found out there was a problem and my surgery was canceled. Can hardly wait for May 8th to get here and to find out if there is anything to be concerned about. Then do what needs to be done and get a rescheduled date to get these huge boobs taken off. I spent the last few days taking in the cups and sides of the last bra I bought. It was way too big now and the new B-C cup bras I bought for after the surgery will not fit. Some days were very difficult. Last week I tried to get an appointment with my mental health counselor. I can't see her until May 3rd. I hope she can help me deal with my stress and depression as a result of all that has been going on during the last month.
