Hi:

I'm new here, my name is Julie I'm 48 years old and had a total Hysterectomy 5 years ago.  I'm on HRT Vivelle Dot.

I have a mammogram every year, also AOK.  Today I got a phone call and they want to see my past years as they saw a Calcuim Deposit (She thinks) and wants to compair my others.  She said "Don't Panic"...Ok how do you not.

I also have Lyme and other problems going on at the moment. 

Has anyone had this and should I be scared out of my pants at the moment.

thank you so much

J

Deep breaths, my dear. Deep breaths. Micro calcifications can be symptomatic that something is amiss -- but it is not necessarily so. I had calcifications under my lumpectomy incision four years after cancer diagnosis. Two biopsies were both negative. Sometimes those little specks are just there. Your doctor is being proactive and precautionary. Both are great reactions and you should be glad about that. Comparing current mammogram to previous ones is the first step in determining what this might be. If your doctor is still suspecious, an ultrasound may be ordered or a biopsy done. You (and your doctor) need to know if there is anything in the area of those calcifications that should not be there. Don't panic. You cannot change what is, all you can do is find out with it is and then deal with it. Hang in there. You will get through this. Hugs, Lauri (dxed 04/11/96)

Hi, Julie, hope you are managing to dig out from the snow. We got about 4-5 inches here on the north side of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. 15 inches must have slowed things down a lot. At least it will not last long.

Glad I was able to calm your jitters a bit. I know you feel like panicking. We've all been there. Just know that you are on the right path. Have a great Easter (if you celebrate it) and keep us posted on what you find out. Hugs, Lauri (dxed 04/11/96)
