I just received my first mammogram since treatment. I am so relieved to say, everything is normal. Whoopie!!! I must admit though, I was actually terrified when I went in. Lately my breast has been pretty sore, thick and large. Does that make sense? The dr. called it thickening. I call it as close to a fake boob but still real. My right side is now a bit larger than it was before so all of those cute bras I have are cutting into my right breast now. Ugh! of course, I should look at the bright side, more shopping!
I was so glad my oncologist told me what to expect with this mammogram though, otherwise I might have lost it. He said because this is the first since finalizing treatment, it will be the most intense in order to create a new baseline. They did extra smashing, i mean imaging AND they had the radiologist come out to talk to me. I was hoping it was that cutie that did the procedure before my surgery, but no such luck. Whah! If I hadn't have known all of that was normal, that would've been super scary. BUT she came out and said everything is normal and to come back in a year. Wow, that seems a little long to me, luckily my oncologist is seeing me every 3 months.
