Two tails are really 2 needle trails pushed through a breast lump…(scaring the patient by implying biopsy trails are new growths)

before 50 lb weight loss

I had a breast ultrasound last week…

I refused the mammogram, so all I had was an ultrasound…

Afterwards I treated myself to a massage…

After the massage I felt a pain under my breast, that felt very similar to the pain I had last year(2014) after the breast

core needle biopsy(2 needle punctures)…

I went home & Googled the symptoms I felt last year after the breast biopsy…

Found out that sometimes the needle can pierce the Pleura, the chest wall, & cause a tiny bit of lung collapse, or the Pleura

fills up with fluid, or something like that…

The feeling like you are going to get pneumonia…

So today my family doctor calls & says he has got results back from the ultrasound…

They compared it to last year’s pictures which were taken BEFORE the biopsy…

So they say that there are 2 new “tails” that are different from last year…

Duh…Of course there are two new “tails”…

The breast biopsy flings through a lump & pushes out the other side of said lump…

Twice pushing out lump material into a tail formation…

Duh of course there are two tails that are new…I HAD A BREAST BIOPSY THAT CAUSED THEM…

Anyways, he’s like:”They want you to speak to a specialist”…he means they want me to have a lumpectomy right away & go

to

some guy to book the appointment for surgery, because that is ALL that is going to happen there promise

(not an intelligent discussion of all the myriad of options I have)…

I say:”First, let’s take a look at the hole in my chest caused by the biopsy…”

“I’d like to see the dimensions of this hole & why exactly it opened up during a massage a year & a half later…”

“& for the record, I am not having any new surgery until we make sure that hole is patched up to my lungs…”

So I went for a chest X-ray to see that pneumothorax hole…

& I didn’t worry about these two stupid tails they are seeing, I know how they got there…

That’s not cancer “growing”…That’s the result of plunging a needle twice through a lump…

How stupid is this world becoming that this is not obvious?

You catch more flies with honey, you catch more flies with honey…

Keep telling me this…

Let me be nice tomorrow…

12:30 pm going to have a little chat about “tails” & biopsies & spreading fear that should be apologies for Iatrogenic effect…

I am not going to be told that cancer is spreading when in reality things are fine…

Lord give me strength…

What a day…

(Biography chatter:from my Author Central page on Amazon-Grove Health Science is a series of 12 books now!) Hi...I'm Sari Grove...Sari sounds like Mary...Grove is the last name I took from my husband, 'cause it is a really nice name, & he was very very good looking, & I married him, & my maiden name, the name I grew up with, was "Slatt", which could be turned into all sorts of unfortunate words, which is why when I was looking for a mate, I sought someone with a cool last name...(I cannot tell you how many totally worthy men I had to ignore due to their last names being unmelodic or otherwise unsuitable...) Grove Canada is a pen name, mostly because when I needed a web address, I could not get Grove.com or even grove.ca, so I just got GroveCanada, due to a serious lack of imagination in that moment...It stuck, so I still use it...I thought this time, if I used Grove Canada as a pen name, that maybe you might look up my blog online, at GroveCanada.ca, & enjoy the freshness of getting information from the horse's mouth, up to the minute, rather than the instant obsoleteness that a book creates...Like a car depreciates as soon as you buy it-a book is old as soon as it is published...For a Virgo perfectionist, this inability to easily update, with a new chapter, with new research, causes me constant worrisome self-abnegating, consternation... I use those dot dot dot things, the etcetera symbol, at the end of my sentences, as a habit-you will always know it is me writing, you will always pause at the end of a sentence to think for a moment, you will remember that poetry is beautiful, & you will take everything I say with a giant grain of Pink Himalayan salt(since the grammatical error will irk you into that state of skepticism)! Love & Hugs, Sari ps. I became a Christian at the age of 21, which may seem like a non sequitur, & though my faith is decent my works may not really do justice to that title-but I thought I'd mention it, since my first name Sari always seems to force an assumption about my background-and though you would be right to assume that it tends to be a Jewish name, you might not be right in assuming that that is what I am going to sound like when I expound on some of my karmic principles or other ethical compasses I have developed...Not that I have done away with my past, it is just I have iced the cake with the new updated version-so if you wrong me, I may just turn the other cheek(New), instead of doing the eye for an eye thing back at you!(old)...
