Two weeks ago Ginny’s doctor’s office in Richmond told us the needle biopsy to her neck revealed no cancer. We were, of course, relieved. Earlier this week, the doctor called to say he still wanted to schedule a surgical biopsy because the lump was large and dense. While we were visiting one of my Sloan Kettering doctors, we asked him to take a look at it. By the end of the next day, Ginny’s had four needle biopsies and an initial assessment: this looked malignant.
They wanted to schedule CT scans right away, but couldn’t because of Ginny’s allergies to some meds. So we’ve now got an appointment at MSK at 7:45 a.m. Monday, Christmas Eve. We’ll see what happens from there.
