The place I got my mammogram done at yesterday just called to tell me they found something on my right breast and they need me to come in for more testing which I can't do until after my surgery tomorrow :/

BIG :hug: :hug: (because I lack helpful words).

Thank you :hug:

:hug::hug: I am sorry to hear that. I know that it is easier said than done, but try not to worry. This happened to me once and to several friends where it turned out that they just needed to get a better picture. :hug::hug:

Thank you :hug:

I've heard that too...that it can really be something quite simple. And if it IS something, it's better to be caught early. :)

Good luck on the surgery! I know you'll do fine!

Thanks :hug:

I am sorry to hear this. :hug:

I know many folks that go back for another film done and it's nothing bad. Try not to worry - it won't change one thing.

If you are feeling really stressed, try to do some deep breathing to help.

I am hoping for the very best in your surgery and your next breast examm.

Thank you :hug:

I am very stressed. I do have the surgery tomorrow and it is the first time I am being put to sleep so I have that and now the breast thing, which worries me because my momma and 1 of my sisters have battled breast cancer.

I know how you feel. Back in April I had a mammo and got a call back to reschedule another because they needed to get a better look. I freaked a little but went to the 2nd appointment a few days later where they did the repeat mammo and even an ultrasound. I have a lumpy left breast and while it did not look like it was anything to worry about I was told to reschedule for another mammo in 6 months. Fast forward 6 months I will be going back again on Monday the 18th. You are young, I am betting they just need a better view and you will be on your way but no matter what, it is good that you are on top of things. Best of luck!

I'm very sorry to hear this. Please let us know the results of the test. I know it is so very stressful to hear something like this, but know that in the vast majority of cases this is something routine (such as a benign cyst).


10-12-2010, 12:11 PM
:hug: I'm so sorry to hear this. But as the above posters say, try not to worry yourself too much.
I hope that your surgery and test both have positive outcomes.

Thanks so much, y'all :hug: :hug:

This happened to me a couple of years ago and it scared me a little because both my Mother and Grandmother had breast cancer. But everything was fine; I have lumpy breasts and one of the lumps just got caught at a particular angle on the film.

For me the first mammo was worse. I didn't eat breakfast and the room was a little warm so I think my blood sugar must have went too low. I remember the technician telling me to hold my breath and the next thing I knew I was getting up close and personal with the dust bunnies on the floor - :faint: I had passed out. Scraped up my face and arm and bent up my glasses. Imagine how the technician must have felt when the 300+ lb patient started falling to the floor. :yikes:

As for your surgery, I had to have one as an outpatient in 2008 and was worried about the anesthesia (sp?). I remember transferring to the table and the mask coming towards my face and then.....................
the nurse was telling me it was time to wake up. Granted I hadn't slept the night before so I was really tired.

I know it's easier said than done but try not to worry. It'll drain your energy.

Thanks :hug:

I'm praying for you girl! I had to get a breast ultrasound once--the dr. just told me I have "Gritty T!tties"!!!!

10-12-2010, 01:32 PM
You are going to be okay! Regardless of what the results are, I believe it and YOU have to believe it too. I had a scare a few years ago and it ended up being a cyst so I know how stressful it can be to wait for results and I went through a down period but I had to muster up some faith and believe it was going to come back okay and if not I had to pray to God for strength to get through it.

I pray everything turns out okay for you I really do :hug:

The mammogram place just called back to ask me to come there today for the other tests so I am gone :/

10-12-2010, 01:49 PM
I am glad that you can go ahead and get it over with!

10-12-2010, 01:58 PM
Hugs. I'll keep you in thoughts and prayers. Let us know how the appointment goes today. I have a lot of fibrous tissue that gave me some scares, but turned out to be nothing.

Hopefully they will have some results right after the test. Please let us know when you get back home!

Thinking of you and sending positive energy your way.

:hug: That's great (no more waiting) you are definitely in my thoughts and prayers.

My son is a Radiology Tech and he said, if you haven't had one for a very long time or it's your first one, they often ask you back for a second, using the first a baseline to go from. :hug:

I need to go again, but the first time I did the tech got called away and left me hanging by my flattened booby in the machine for 10 minutes! :mad:

Loving Me

I hope it all goes ok, I'll be thinking of you. Please let us know as soon as you get home how it went.

10-12-2010, 03:48 PM

Sending you wishes for good health and quick recovery from your surgery tomorrow.

Michelle, her is a :hug:. Glad to hear you could go into day for breast testing.
Pray all goes well today and tomorrow.

Thanks y'all :hug:

Hope your surgery went well. Now that's over - less stress and focus on getting the breast image cleared up.

10-14-2010, 08:54 AM
I have had to go in for repeat mammos and have had cysts that turned out to be nothing in the past. It's scary! Hugs and prayers to you! I'm glad you're taking care of it.

Thanks so much ♥
