Dark Billy turns white

Tiny Billy painted white

Billy


I just bought some white lack and am done with my second time painting a tiny billy (40x106cm). It was dark brown before, nice, but too dark for our living room. I’ll probably need to paint it a third time… we’ll see. Time consuming for sure – I’m happy it’s so tiny.

EDIT: Painted it three times (not the bottom though, I might leave that dark or paint it later on) and pimped it a bit. Bought another floor piece (for 5 EURO) and bought a little basket to hide things (5 EURO as well).

Biopsy it is

It’s been a week since the second doctor approved of me having a probably good tumor in my left breast.
I was relieved that it didn’t grow and that it looks like a typical Fibroadenoma. BUT – it’s probably that way.
Seeing that I couldn’t stop thinking about Tammy the last week and read scary stories about Fibroadenomas being not good at all, I spontaneously called the radiologist this afternoon and made an appointment for a biopsy.

It’s on February 11th, 1pm.
I’ll get a punch biopsy.
I’ll have to get a blood test before then with three values about my blood clotting.

Don’t know how I feel about the biopsy, I’m not scared of it or the results, I just hope everything will go smooth.

Too much Information

The online world, internet, is a great place. You find a lot of information you are interested in (or not) but you also find information you might not want to read.
There are so many people online daily, so many people blogging, so, of course there is one person (or two, or three…) who was falsly diagnosed with a fibroadenoma. It just looked like a fibroadenoma, but it was cancer. And now, after reading her story, I have that funny feeling in my belly again.

So:
Ultrasound #1 by the gynecologist: Dec. 21st 2012 – Diagnosis: Fibroadenoma – Size: 5mm x 3mm
Ultrasound #2 by the radiologist: Jan. 17th 2013 – Diagnosis: Fibroadenoma – Size: 5mm x 3mm
Ultrasound #3 by the gynecologist: Apr. 12th 2013
Ultrasound #4 by the radiologist: Aug. 22nd 2013

I don’t need a biopsy, I can have one if I want it though, for inner peace. After thinking about it a few days (and reading online what the side-effects can be) I decided not to get a biopsy. But now I’m not sure. Now I’m scared again. The only thing that keeps me a bit calm is that the tumor didn’t grow in a month. That it’s still 5x3mm and that, normally, cancerous tumors grow quite fast in such young age.

I’m still taking the nuvaring, I have one left. I will stop taking it then. I don’t want any hormones going into my body, no matter how.

I think I’m still staying with “no biopsy” and wait until my Ultrasound #3. I’m not sure if I should make that appointment for March or April.
