This is a quick update. I must rest. But I wanted you all to know that a lot of things happened today that made me laugh. But I will save those silly things for another day.
Today, the good doctor at Sloan Kettering Hospital in NYC (the catstir experts), told me that she disagrees with the Greenwich Hospital radiologists findings on my mammogram.
Yes, I have catstir in my right breast, but my left breast, the "good breast," the one labeled "no suspicious findings" by a doctor associated with Greenwich Hospital, is, in fact, suspicious.
DID NOT SEE THAT COMING RIGHT? Neither did I!
So I had yet another mammogram done on my "good breast" and because her suspicions were confirmed, I am scheduled for a biopsy at 9:00 am tomorrow morning.
There is no messing around at Sloan Kettering. I like that.
My good doctor at Sloan Kettering also informed me that when the doctor at Greenwich Hospital did the biopsy on my right breast (hereby labeled the catstir breast), she put the metal clip - the clip that marks the catstir site - in the wrong spot.
SHE PUT THE MARKER THAT MARKS THE CATSTIR IN THE WRONG SPOT.
This is why you go for second opinions.
Now, I have fight in me. This is exactly what I needed. YOU made a mistake Greenwich Hospital Dr! It's no longer about me wearing an underwire bra's, or me being an asshole, or me doing this when I should have been doing that... For today, this was about YOU misreading a mammogram and miss placing a clip that would mark my catstir spot.
The palatial ambiance of Greenwich Hospital - the marble floors, the giant fish tank, the baby grand piano - all that is nice, but I want to know I'm receiving the best possible care. I listened to my gut and I was right.
Thats one giant leap for MOnkey!!!
P.S. As far as dumb-ass comments go... cross off, "At least you only have catstir in one breast!"
