Bernadette: I am so sorry that someone didn't do their job plus didn't inform you about the results of your previous tests. You have a right to be angry. I am mad just reading what happened and knowing that this same thing has happened to many other women. Fortunately, you have had the tumor removed and are on your way to a full recovery. I know that the surgery, chemo and rads are not fun. The whole thing stinks!!! Right now you need to keep a positive attitude and get thru the treatments. If you think that there is a malpractice suit, take the time to speak w/ an attorney and let him/her handle it for you. I wish that you could turn the clock back but that's not possible. Stay focused as you have been. Plus, talk to your friends and tell them to be sure and get a copy of the written reports from their mammos. You may be able to prevent them from having to experience what you are now. Turn the negative into a positive.
