If my stereotatic core biopsy results in further surgery, how much time is normal between biopsy and surgery?

    It's a matter of scheduling. If your having reconstruction, the 2 Dr's need to coordinate together. Could be a week, or a month. Prayers to you.

    It's really up to you and the schedule of your doctor.

    Mine was about 3 weeks but that was my choice since I had a few things I needed to do before surgery.

    Hi Mine was 2 weeks- post stereotactic - but I had a hematoma post biopsy . They wanted to wait for that to decrease . Had the " lumpectomy " and doing ok . All the best to you --!! Waiting is the hardest !
