Thank goodness we got all we needed the first time and no need for more views. All clear. Onc visit was a piece of cake too, boobs have had enough activity for the day. smhair
Oncologist is not happy with new 'guidelines' for mammograms/ screening....noting there was not one doc on the panel. Lucky me though, with history, he says I will never get denied my mammogram.
Happy Thanksgiving ladies, lots to be thankful for. smilewinkgrin
