First of all I do NOT have to have any procedures! The place they were looking at was the same place previously biopsied. Due to a typo that said does not look benign instead of does now look benign I went through a week and a half of mental anguish for nothing!!!! My ds have only 5 weeks before they go back to school, we have not gone on vacation and we had to pay $207 for a surgeon to correct a typo on a report that made the place on my right side look like it was still there!!!!! I am sooooo aggrivated over this! I could not even concentrate on reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix to my ds had this going in the back of my mind constantly and now I am happy it is nothing don`t get me wrong but after all this worrying and it turns out to be what they already knew was benign! Oh well I still have this month and the first week of the next to relax and enjoy the summer break with the ds. Have a great 4th of July everyone I know we will now that the tension of this is gone!!!!

I'm soooo glad you're OK and don't have to have any further procedures! The situation is terribly frustarting though. Seems like someone should wave or pay that fee for you. It's bad enough you lost time to worry, you shouldn't have to pay a surgeon's bill for a radiologist's typo!

Have a fabulous fourth and enjoy the rest of your summer appreciating your healthy report!
