I had mine done in Nov, a little later than I had planned, but I waited till I switched my PCP. I usually get deathly ill, to the point of almost passing out. That vision always haunts me. They had a new set up w/ the digital, it was actualy better than I thought it would be. It still isn't my idea of fun day out, but I did it. My DM had breast cancer AND has survived for over 10 yrs. now. She never wanted to go for the mammo, finally the pain sent her! She was so lucky, and so were we! I took her for her chemo and radiation treatments, I was afraid I would lose her then, it was tough. BUT, so is she!
I hope someone finds a better way to test, it will have to be a woman that comes up w/ it. Men don't seem to design things w/ real women in mind. Just think about all the tiny stalls in the ladies' rooms. The lay out of the stall, can't close the doors, w/o slamming into a wall. AND only 2/3 stalls to a bathroom, and the line out the door. Many women w/ children. Man, I'm working myself into a tizzy.
Anyway, what I wanted to say b/f I went off on a tangent, Even tho it hurts, pls take the time to test, it could save your life and save your family from heartbreak.
God bless. Alice.
