2. thank you for responding 2Design

My time at the breast clinic was short and although given time to ask questions I knew not what to ask. Now that the procedure is two days in the past I have questions.

So this marker is to let them know where they took samples you say. Ok I can go with that. I was kinda thinking it might have been something left behind to collect further data, something to be retrieved later maybe. Sorry, this is entirely new to me.

Wish I could show off the bruising. It is fairly impressive but not in a good way. The biopsy doctor warned me that there would be some of that and some bleeding (there was) but I wasn't expecting a bruise quite literally the size of a baseball! That bruise is a bit worrysome. If it is still there when I get called by the biopsy doctor on Monday I'll definitely be asking about it.

I suppose I should add for anyone about to undergo this procedure: In my case it wasn't so bad. The needle was very small and the local anesthesia numbed me up to where I didn't feel it. I am the worlds biggest baby around needles and for me this whole procedure was easier than a standard blood draw.

Thanks again 2Design
