The clip

"In some cases, a small sterile clip will be placed into the biopsy site of the breast to mark the location in case a future biopsy is needed. This microclip is left inside the breast and causes no pain, disfigurement, or harm to the patient."

And .. it's super tiny, flat, and only about the size of the tip of a pencil. I have a lot more metal in my ankle than I will ever have in my breast. No worries!


  1. Wow. I didn't get no clip. Lucky you??

  2. Aha! OK, well, I guess thats actually pretty clever of them - no guessing later! Hope youre enjoying your weekend and getting the royal treatment! ;)

  3. Don't go walking through any airport scanners will you, or they'll think you're a terrorist! Good luck with everything - I'm transmitting my very best vibes to you through the ether!
