Ultrasound & Biopsy

So i'm still no closer to getting any result but i am missing about 7 lymph nodes from my right armpit!

Not going to lie, that was brutal!!! OUCHHHHH

Had my first unsympathetic Doctor today, which has left me angry, reeling and pissed off, i'm not going to name him, but i'll refer to him as Doctor Toffee Nose.

There i am in the ultrasound scanning room ALONE, cos they wouldn't let Rich come in with me, when Doctor Toffee nose starts to scan me, then waffles on about:

1) my mammogram showed extensive something or other in my right boob,

2) my MRI scan showed it could be more extensive that i can actually feel!!

WHOA SLOW THE FUCK DOWN......

I've not even had any results yet!?!? I've not spoken to my consultant and now this toffee nosed prick is talking down to me and telling me Rich can't be present while i have these damn biopsies!

Right rewind.... so the conversation between me and toffee nose was;

T/N; So we need to do biopsies Lindzi

ME: That's fine but can my partner (for arguements sake) come in?

T/N : Well no not really cos if he faints we can't be dealing with him!

ME: I can promise you he won't faint, he's dealt with more hospital trips etc than i bet you have!

T/N; Well its not very nice for the person watching you know!

ME: WELL IT'S NOT VERY NICE BEEN LAID HERE EITHER!!!!

1 to me, cos next thing i knew Richard was walking in the room!

Now Toffee nose had obviously spat his dummy out now, cos some jumped up little staff nurse had dared to argue back with them....so he spoke to me now like i was just in for a quick scan!
Hang on pal, your about to hack at my bleeding armpit with a damn potatoe clicky gun, if i want Rich.....

I'M DAMN WELL HAVING HIM HERE!!!

So 7 biopsies and clicks later, i'm laid there thinking....

"TWAT"

And again anyone who knows me will also know that i told his little partner in crime that his bedside manner was terrible and he needed to try and understand what us women are going through!

 

End Result

1 = stroppy toffee nosed doctor who got put in his place!

1 = Vertical Richard (who again never faltered)

1 = or 7 biopsies performed

1 = pissed off Lindzi who is ranting and raving like only i can!!!!!
