I had some "lumps" that were found on my mammogram back in 2006. Needless to say I was freaked out. I had a biopsy done, while awake and the surgeon removed a bunch of clusters (best term I can think of).

I waited, scared to death for the results. When I went to find out the results, the nurse took my blood pressure. The Dr comes in and said "wow, your BP is high". My response "oh really, think it's because I'm sitting here waiting for you to tell me if I have cancer?".

Well, luckily it was nothing more than calcium deposits. And they're very common.
But I know what you're going through. The waiting is crazy.

And having to wait until March is ridiculous! What is wrong with these doctors?

Ugh....the waiting game is ridiculous. But I suppose I shouldn't complain too much. I've had to wait 13 months to see a heart specialist because the public health system is a little bit broken out here.

Once you are IN the system, the care you get is brilliant. But you just gotta wait a loooong time for it!
