Trying not to worry

Saturday, December 08, 2012

On Wednesday I had my annual mammogram. On Friday they called and want me to repeat it on Tuesday along with an ultrasound. It seems there was a place they couldn't get a good read on and I had about ten calfication spots. I know I'd rather be safe then sorry but I keep worrying about it. I know I should live in the moment as I do not know what the results will be. But I had been taking fertility medications for four years and there are some studies that show they can increase your chance of breast cancer. If they don't like what they see on the second mammogram I will have to have a biopsy. I just have so much going on such as a trip to Florida the day after Christmas and my IVF in January. So if I need a biopsy I wouldn't be able to start my meds and that will delay my IVF which wouldn't be a big deal if it was local but we are going to AZ where my dr moved to have it done. Tomorrow is also the last time I will sing with a community chorus that I have been with for about ten years. The director is retiring due to a tumor in his ear and he has lost his hearning in that ear. So it will be a quite emotional day tomorrow. Not to mention I am already emotional and then I get headaches. So I am going to premedicate so I can make it through the day. To add to all of this my dh liver tests keep coming back high so we will see his GI on Monday. Tuesday night I am supposed to go to an Adoption Support Meeting to meet people that have adopted. Wednesday I am hosting and cooking for my daycare teachers Christmas party at my house. Thursday I am in a training for the afternoon. I really don't like having soo much to do.
So now I try to take one day at a time and take a nap!

  my second mammogram they found spots in the upper left quadrant, so i had to go back for a second one. they determined the spots were calcification and they were not in a good place, plus they were a little larger than the doctors liked, so i had to have a needle biopsy. they determined the spots were benign, and since the biopsy effectively removed them, no problem. except for the worrying and fretting that i did, waiting. now, whenever i go in for a mammogram, i have to have them mark the place where i have a small scar from the biopsy.

    Trying not to worry is hard. I work in Women's Health and I've had mammo call backs myself so I totally understand the worrying part. All I can say is that the vast majority of call backs don't end with a biopsy and even the ones that do, the vast majority of biopsies are benign. You sure have a lot going on. Take a deep breath and step back for a moment if you need to! emoticon
