The Scare

It's a horrible scare when you go for your mammogram, and the radiographer calls you in again, and then again to re-do it. Each time with a different mammo plate, and taking more shots than the first.

It's even worse when another radiographer comes in to help and she asks: Does the spot show up??

And then the nightmare begins as you have recently witnessed the battle of a family member's fight with breast cancer, and the wounds are still fresh.

BUT after 5 agonising days of praying, sleepless nights, all's well. *Sigh of relief*

Don't you wish they were more careful with their words.

Or even making an excuse for calling you back in?

No doubt cancer is very common nowadays. And breast cancer is one of the "better" cancers to get as the rate of recovery is higher than all other cancers when detected early. Nobody should have to experience what I did the past 5 days.

Praise the Lord!!

Aiyoh, praise the Lord! The post gave me a scare! Now I'm regretting having secretly thrown away the med exam invitation, so that I won't get nagged by my husband. Ok, I'll make it next year.

Thanks for coming by Stardust. Yes, you should go for your mammo once you hit 40.
