The radiology place called me this AM and said they would like to look at previous films. Freaked me out big time. I have had 4 mammograms in the last 9 years or so (I know....but they NEVER came back suspicious or anything other than perfectly normal, so I wasn't as good about getting the test done as I should have been).
I picked up the oldest ones today (2000 and 2001) and took them over. The newer ones are at a different facility and they archive every few years, so I can't get those for them until tomorrow, or maybe Monday.
The only positive I can think of is if there is anything there, it's not obvious or large, otherwise it would have triggered a call to my gyno/oncologist, and he would have sent me for more tests or a biopsy, or something. Is that reasonable, or am I being Pollyanna-ish?
I don't think this would have bothered me before the OVC, but now anything that sends up a "cancer flag" just sends me right over the ragged edge.
