MK: Someone said that maybe they forgot that they were working with a reconstructed breast. I had to laugh. A friend of mine that had a double mastectomy 3 yo called today and said that she got a reminder letter telling her it was time for her yearly mammo. Since she had gotten one of these letters for the past 3 yrs and called and told them the circumstances, she said that she was tired of being nice. She called them today and said, "Honey, you just go right ahead and schedule that mammo. And, as soon as you find what they did with my boobs after the surgeon cut them off, you just x-ray away." And hung the phone up! Needless to say, the gal was shocked. Looked at my friend's records and called her and apologized!
What is happening this week with mammogram's. I had mine on Tuesday, stayed around and they did more shots, etc. Then went on to the oncologist and he said everything feels normal. Well yesterday I get a message from the onc nurse saying they need me back for more tests. I called today to see what kind of tests and she said more pictures as they saw something. When I told her they did take more pictures after they "saw something", she said they are still not satisfied and want me back. Then today the Doc himself calls my home and leaves a message and calle me at work and says we need you back down here as soon as possible. Now I am worried.
Hang in there, yours will turn out ok and so will mine. What they are seeing on mine is on the same side as I had surgery and that I WILL be having removed and reconstructed as soon as we get our grandbaby and I can get it scheduled. I told the Doc today, I can not have anything done before the baby comes. LOL
Mk: In another post you said...
" I have been bargaining with God so much the past few years, I am thinking He might be calling in the chits. And that is ok with me if it saves just one of our young sisters from having to go through so much."
I know that each one of us has done this, at one time or another, since our diagnosis. It's human and, contrary to what we think of ourselves, we are not superwomen. I haven't been a member here very long nor have I had the privilege of meeting you, but I can tell from reading your posts and all of the posts sent to you, that you are a remarkable, compassionate woman. I don't believe that God will want you to take on more so that someone else won't have to. He is there to help you thru this as are the rest of us. We just don't have the power that he has. :)
Remember what you tell all of us....stay busy, laugh lots, and try not to worry until there is something to worry about.
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one's friend springs from his earnest counsel.
