Today was biopsy day again at Albany Med. The staff got me right in and I can't rave enough about the gentle, caring staff that took care of me today. I was given an ultrasound first to locate the areas and the charge RN Barbara was at my side for the whole procedure. Dr. Whitehead was so great. She explained everything in detail. I had several numbing shots and she took several biopsies from the main mass and then from the affected lymph node near my armpit. Then she moved onto the right breast and took biopsies there. They then placed 3 markers under the skin in the areas. I now have titanium in me! I have attached some pictures of the bandaged up area. They aren't too pretty, but it is what I'm dealing with. I am a little uncomfortable but not to much.
