After the procedure
After the procedure, the guide wire is taped to the chest and the patient is returned to the ward. To prevent the wire from dislocating, there is a small hook at its tip so that it doesn’t move before the operation. The patient may be taken for biopsy or wide local excision on the same day. A very small piece of breast tissue at the tip of the guide wire will be removed and sent for analysis. The patient will spend up to an hour in the recovery ward. On return to the normal ward, your blood pressure, pulse and dressings will be checked. Dr. Monika will explain about the drain care at home, if it is in place and about your next follow-up. The surgery scar will fade over time.
