Hi All,

Tomorrow will be my first post chemo and radiation mamogram and I am concerned.  The surgeon ordered a diagnostic mamogram which I guess is prudent since I already had a scare which was benign.  My complete physical is Monday and then a colonoscopy as soon as I can get it scheduled.
I remember the call like it was yesterday when I found out in 2011 I had cancer.  You have all been through this so I hope you can give me positive prayers and thoughts.  Thank you all, Joan

Joan, 

My mammograms on my remaining breast are always diagnostic now. I'm assuming since you had a lumectomy yours would also be diagnostic too. There seems to always be pretest anxiety...hoping this feeling does not last for ever. My best to you for excellent results,

Blair

You're welcome. We are really enjoying the new house and the quiet and calm of the mountains. I had my mammo last month and blood work and got my port removed last week. All is well and we do need a good year! Smile  Hope you are enjoying your new home too.

Ladies, thanks, still no results, I am switching next time to a facility that reads them right away.  Have a great weekend, Joan

Joan,
Waiting just plain sucks...just can't think of a nicer word for it. Hope you will call them first thing in the morning...the facility and your doc. 

Inwas very pleased this time with Vanderbilt since it was my first time there...had my results in 30 minutes. 

Thinking positive thoughts for you.

Dear Joan,
Praying for the best results possible from your mammogram.  The waiting really plays with every fiber of your being.

Thank you for all your well wishes, Dr called and my mammo was great!  I do not see the Dr until march and plan to stay healthy!  My primary Dr has some plans for me and I need to see her on Monday for my physical results.    I am sitting under a gorgeous coral amaryllis plant which has been a wonder watching.
It is beside the area where I use my computer.  Thanks to God for all you do for us!  Regards, Joan

Dear Joan,
So glad to hear that your mammogram was OK.  WHEW! 
Also, isn't it wonderful how therapeutic watching God's creations (an amaryllis plant) can be.  I had a similar experience watching my (mums) back in the Fall. 
 
Love and God Bless,
Lillie
