Should I be Scared?
Friday, January 09, 2009
Okay everyone— today I got a phone call at work from my health care provider. I had a mammogram last week and they want me to come in for a sonogram because they want to examine something they saw in my left breast. I am 43 years old, and this is the first mammogram I have ever had. It could be a cyst or a swollen lymph node, or it could be cancer, or who knows what else?! I don’t feel any lumps or bumps, so I don’t know what they saw.
Should I be scared? I couldn’t get an appointment until January 19th, but the woman I spoke to said the radiologist would interpret the results the same day, so that part is good. At least I don’t have to wait any longer to find out what’s going on. I just wish I didn’t have to wait 10 days for my appointment.
I guess I’ll just party like there’s no tomorrow until then! LOL! Has anyone else ever gone through this?
