Some help, Guys

MammaDog will be having surgery to remove a lump in her breast. We don't feel much like blogging, but here's a question:

Is a guide wire (I think that's what they are saying) painful? I've been told that it is surprisingly invasive. At least that is how I interpret this statement, "Nothing could prepare me for the huge needle going into my breast!"

I personally have had breast-cysts drained, but nothing like a guide wire. M is beside herself with anxiety, and I don't know how to help her now. Please help with some feedback, if you've any experience in this.

No emails, please. I don't think she reads my blog, and I don't want to distress her any further.

Who is mammadog? I don't know anything about this kind of procedure but I will pray that she will endure it without too much agony. I think the anxiety is worse than the actual experience. Maybe they could give her some diazepam to calm her down before the procedure?

Stay away from doctors.
