MRI guided Biopsy - What was your experience like?

Update...
I was called back in to the breast clinic and I had another ultrasound instead of an MRI and this time they saw the mass so they went ahead and performed an ultrasound guided biopsy. Unfortunately, the diagnosis is invasive ductal carcinoma with mucinous features grade 2. They took 6 core biopsies. I am very upset because January of 2020 I had a different kind of breast cancer in the other breast and had a lumpectomy and 4 weeks of full breast radiation with a boost. So, I didn't even make it 4 years without cancer. My life is so much more complicated now since my husband has Alzheimer's and he can't drive.
Right now I am waiting for a call from the breast surgeon's office to schedule an appointment for me.
(Are we having fun yet?)

Oh Katrina, I'm so sorry to read your news. While one might think that having a second go around at this you might be prepared. But I can only imagine that knowing what is to come is unsettling to say the least. You didn't expect this I'm sure. And to have to go through this while also caring for your husband certainly adds a layer of complexity.

When will you meet with the surgeon? Is there someone who can accompany you to your appointments and someone else who can stay with your husband if necessary?
