The past week has been tough. Last week I went for my yearly mammogram. Two days later they called me and said they couldn't read the "left" as well as they wanted to so could I come back in a.s.a.p.
My heart was in my throat. In '09 I had the same thing happen to me. Then it was several times to go back, biopsy and then surgery. I was one of the lucky ones as it came back as benign. The Dr. did say that he was glad it came out because he felt that eventually, that would have turned into cancer.
With heavy heart I returned today for a new round of mammograms and a sonogram. After my mammogram I looked at the film and saw a big white mass. Then, during the sonogram I saw a big, black mass. The wouldn't let me leave until I saw the Dr. I was sweating!
The doctor came in and said that she had checked my last years film and compared it to this year and apparently a cyst that I had was a bit bigger but...she is sure it is a cyst and all I have to do is come back in 6 months.
Whew!! I had everything sent to all my various doctors but I feel like the weight of the world is off my shoulders!!
Hooray!! If you haven't gotten your mammogram this year TO GET IT!! It could mean your life!!
I am so thankful, so very thankful!!
