Hi Patty... sorry you have to go through this but I just wanted to ease any fears you have of a stereotactic biopsy. While its not the most dignified procedure (I had to lay on my stomach with my boob through a hole
the techs were wonderful and professional and kind and upbeat and sweet... and honestly it wasn't painful at all. A shot of novacaine was the worst part and even that was nothing. The biopsy is quick but the positioning etc is the part that takes a little time. I can't answer about the appointment with a surgeon... I had JUST had my gallbladder removed so had a follow up with her anyway.
Good luck... you'll do great!
