Q & A

I got the dreaded call today that my mammogram showed “abnormalities” so I have to go back for another one, along with an ultrasound.  Has anyone else been through this?  Any suggestions on staying sane until my appointment next Friday?

    • Sorry to hear that you have to go but better safe then sorry.  My sister and best friend both had to go through it.  Both of them just had major cysts in their breast.  The usual cut down on caffeine, eat right, get more rest and reduce your stress is what they were told. Keep your mind busy and know that you are in good hands with the doctors and in God’s hands as always.

    • I had the same thing and went for the ultra sound and the Doc said my breast are dense and the mamo machine dousn’t always pick things up.  I didn’t freek out I was so plesed after the ultra sound and found all was well.  Don’t worry about over the weekend (easier said than done) but chances are you’ll be fine.hearthappyheart

    • I had that a few years ago and it was fine.  Now, I have a different story and I am also waiting for results so I know how you feel.  This has to do with my other female parts.  I have been waiting all week already for my biopsy results and if I don’t hear by 3pm today then I have to wait until Monday.  I just want to get it over with know how to proceed/ what is going on.  Let’s think of each other during this time.

    • I do know of a BF that had to go through this.  The reason given to her was that her breast was very dense.  Mammograms are the second step besides well self examination and if to dense then the ultra sound.  It may seem a longggg waite but please know that every day I will be saying a prayer for you and keeping you on my mind.

    • stay calm. I had small lumps the mammogram detected so  they did more in depth testing and it turned out to be calcification...nothing to worry about... just keep up with the tests and make sure you dont miss any appts, hopefully you will be A-okheart
