Hello Kellie! I am so sorry that you have had a questionable mammo but the good thing is that you DID have it done and if there is, and that is a big IF, it has been found early. Also, it sounds as though your medical team is very, very good and on top of things. I know how afraid you are right now. We have all had those feelings. My father died of lung cancer and when I was first diagnosed w/ bc, I, like you, thought of my dad. But, you have to remember that brain cancer and bc are 2 completely different types and are treated differently. BC today is a very managable type of cancer. So try hard to not compare your dad and the experiences that you had w/ his care to you. I know how difficult that is but I believe that you can do it. Here are a couple of suggestions that you might try. First, why not call the clinic or hospital where you are going to have the follow-up mammo and ultrasound and see if they can schedule you before the 14th. Also, be sure and take someone...husband, sister, mother, good friend....w/ you. That way you won't be alone and you will also have someone that will be able to remember everything that you are told.
We are here for you. Please don't hesitate to post anytime. Ask any questions. We have all be where you are right now and are here to support you.
Tomorrow is the appointment. Be thinking positive thoughts for me. I have tried not to think much about it the last few days, thinking that whatever will be will be, but I need all the help I can get with good thoughts.
Kellie: I am sending positive thoughts your way w/ lots of hugs. Watch for all of the pink feathers that will be flying around you. We will all be there for you!
I am so glad you found us. We will all be there with you today. My very first mammogram confirmed a lump growing close to the surface that was very small that I found quite by surprise. The next few days will be a whirlwind for you, but all my breast friends have given you very good advise. Please keep us posted. I will have you in my prayers today.
