Default Why I've Been MIA

Hi, everyone! I've been MIA besides a check-in every few days and I wanted to let my SB friends know what's going on. A few weeks ago, I found a lump in my breast and DH and I both thought it was weird and deserved a trip to the Dr. Well, that Dr. appointment took place about a week-and-a-half ago and she found more lumps that she was concerned about. This morning, DH and I left at 5:30 am to have an ultrasound done (at 27, I'm considered "too young" for a mammogram,) in the "big city" since we don't have an imaging center here.

The whole situation has put me in a bit of a dump and I've just wanted to be with hubby and not online, which is probably a good thing, even though I have missed 3FC. I don't know the outcome of my ultrasound, but I'm feeling much better now that it's over. I'm hoping I will have my follow-up with my Dr. this week.

I will be back to chatting soon, I hope. I do want to catch up with all of you! We are super-busy at work, so my internet time will be limited to when I'm at home; we'll be skipping lunches and working late quite a bit over the next two - three weeks, but that's a whole different story!!

I know I've been thought of and I will appreciate your kind thoughts and prayers regarding this! Thanks a bunch!!

~Kim

Thanks so much for checking in, Darling Kim. I know how worried you must be as I've gone through the same thing. It turned out to be a reaction from black fly bites that made the lymph tissue lumpy. I hope it's that simple for you and that the results come soon.

Please do keep us posted.

Yes, Kim, you've been in my thoughts. I hope you will have your good news soon and can put this behind you.

I've missed you, Kim! My understanding is that young people's breast tissue is too dense for a mammogram. Hate to say it, but 'dense' is short lived.

Please know that you are in my prayers.

Kim, I'm not a south beacher but I am responding to this thread due to content.

I went through the same thing many years ago when I was just your age. I had several lumps and the only way to see them was through ultrasound. I was so worried and anxious. In the end I had the questionable lump removed and biopsied. It was benign. I have always had lumpy breasts and continue to get mammograms every few years that are always negative. Keep positive thoughts!

Kim, you touched my heart, my 29 year old daughter is going through the exact same thing ... Her apointment is scheduled for Tuesday and her follow-up with her Dr. on Thursday. I will certainly keep you in my prayers and thoughts.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words, kind thoughts and prayers. I haven't found out what date/time my follow-up appointment is, but I will be calling in the morning to see why it hasn't been set up.


Evangeline: My thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter.

Kim, no news is good news. If there was something there, they'd want to see you right away. Think positive!
