Has anyone had one done? Did you go to work after or take the day off? How long does it take?

I am having one done on Wednesdayat 8am and am not sure if I should take the day off. My boss wouldn't really care one way or the other and I have a desk job, we have a fridge/freezer in the break room so I can switch out the ice packs throughout the day.

I've never had one done.  I"m sorry you are going through this.  If your boss doesn't care that you are in the office I would take the rest of the day off.  Relax at home.  That way you can get comfortable on the couch/bed and not worry about getting your work done while feeling uncomfortable switching out ice packs and working.  Do you have enough personal time to take off?

I have the time to take off if I want to, I just hate wasting leave hours. I did just ask my boss if he cares if I take the whole day off and he doesn't (I have a good boss). So it is up to me and how I feel afterwards. So thankful for my job and who I work for.

 This is what I'd do if I could.

I had a biopsy of my lymph nodes under my arm near my breasts. They gave me pain meds, I didnt use them. I didnt even use pain meds but you may be groggy from the anestesia (sp) and you may be in pain. For me I was told not to do heavy lifting take it easy. Good luck!

I've had multiple breast biopsies done ad was able to go back to work. Its not so bad. Take some Tylenol for pain and use an ice pack. Save your days for important things with your children. That's what I do. Good luck!
