Saving my Tatas one Mammogram at a Time…Part 3


**This is the last of what turned out to be a series of posts about my experience with mammogram screenings. I updated the posts with current resource information. These are not sponsored posts. To start reading from the beginning click here.

It’s been another six months since I last stepped foot into the women’s center office.  After the first two mammograms and ultrasound I had butterflies in my stomach.  Thankfully I found a new job since the last exam and have a complete benefits package.  I didn’t even have to leave work to get it done, the mobile office came to us.

Sleep deprived I went through the motions.  I swear I felt like my boobs were going to explode from the pressure during the exam.  In the radiologists’ defense  I was nervous and tense, which makes everything worse.  When it was over the radiologist let me know my doctor would have the results within 48 hours.

I spent the next two days trying very hard not to think about what the results would show.  When the phone rang and I recognized the number to the doc’s office I inwardly cringed.  The nurse told me that the mass was no longer present and she would see me at my yearly visit.

Hopefully  sharing my experience has made you feel like you’re not the only one going through this.  Tomorrow is the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  The links and information in these posts have been updated to reflect the current free and low income breast cancer program on the Susan G. Komen website found here.

If I hadn’t had a dear friend and such a wonderful husband to support me through this experience I can’t imagine what I would have done. Thank you!
