7/27/09 - TMI post :P


That's all I got to say about that! I went in last Tuesday for my annual torture appointment. During the exam, my ob/gyn told me she found a small lump in my left breast. And since she likes her patients to have a baseline mammogram at age 35 anyway, I got to make another trip into Troy Beaumont.

So, my mammogram & ultrasound were this morning. It wasn't as bad as the horror stories I've heard, but it's still not something I want to do all the time! I had the first mammo, then the ultrasound. There was apparently something on the right side they wanted to check out, too. The ultrasound tech really was looking on the underside, but then only spent a short time on the left & the "area of concern". I ended up having a second mammo on the right, but they really squished it that time. Guess they really wanted the tissue as flat as possible.

Thankfully, I got the results before I left. Whatever it was they saw was benign, but they want me to go back in 6 months to check them again.

Ya know - I really thought your body started to fall apart at 40. Mine started at 35. First the polyp on my uterus this winter and now this! I went back off the pill and now my skin looks like I'm 15 again. My girl parts are really giving me troubles!
