Dr. F’s office is very nice. Behind Bloomingdales building / 900 North Michigan. Bill goes with me. The technician is awesome. Kind and gentle. We go through the mammogram, take some extra pictures of some concerning areas then head into the ultrasound room. Normal office room, with ultrasound equipment, like when you are having a baby, same deal. This technician takes a bunch of photos then calls the big guy in. He spends 45 minutes with me. Back and forth, up and down, both sides, back to the spot I found. He’s concerned. Get dressed. Get your husband. Let’s meet in my office.
He thinks we should biopsy two sites. The lymph node that I found and some place right below it, where light won’t pass through the site. Looks like a grey blob. But every other spot lets light all the way through. This is casting shadow, and he’s using the word “troublesome.”
“Be here at 8 a.m. tomorrow.”
