Music with a Breast Biopsy Surgery


Let’s be honest, getting a biopsy of any kind is pretty scary!  One of the things that fear does to you is to cause your muscles to tense up, your breathing to become shallow, and your heart rate to race.  Sometimes blood pressure goes up, sometimes is goes down too far.  Going in to a biopsy, you don’t know if you’ll get a clear bill or health or if doctor will say you’re going to have to have surgery!

I’ve worked with many women who had to have a breast biopsy.  I had to have one myself!  Susan was a lady in her 50’s and reported that she’s an anxious person anyway.  She contacted me when her MD said that he felt it would be wise to do a biopsy and perhaps a lumpectomy.  Listen to Susan recount her experience:

The proof’s in the pudding!  Susan is one of our many success stories!  If you are having surgery of any kind, please consider doing yourself a favor and use the Surgical Serenity Solutions!
