The like using their big words, don't they? I don't know any of those words, but I can tell that this is good news. I'm raising my coffee mug right now in your honor. I would raise a mug of something else but it's much too early for that, maybe later tonight. Cheers woman!!

Positivity abounds! Even tho I think breasts should just kind of fall off after oh, 65, I'm glad I still have my allotted two.

Hooray; especially for non proliferative changes!!!

My cyst (found in a mammogram and subsequent sonogram) has been hurting me, but my internist says she can't feel anything - so I guess I wait and see what happens - if anything.

So, I guess I need to close my eyes and think about the white light of healing....because my incision has opened at one end and it is infected. Spent 3 hours in the ER because Dr. Kanning was "out." On antibiotics. ~sigh~

Yea!!! But I hope that infection has cleared up. How unpleasant.

Saw Dr. Kanning yesterday. He gave me some really long explanation and even drew a picture of my boob to show me why it opened up....and of course blames it on Plavix as well. This, after he told me the weight of my breast caused it to all start.....I told him to wait and see what his testicles do when he is 70. It looks OK, better, but still open about 2cm.
