I had my annual mammo and ultrasound on the "other" breast. (No cancer. Yeah!) I thought I was going to have an ultrasound on the cancer side. They said there was no order for that and they don't usually do an ultrasound after a mastectomy. Is there any imaging usually done after a mastectomy? Isn't there a chance you could still have a recurrance after a mastectomy? How would you know if you don't feel a lump, like if it's next to the chest wall?
I see my onco doc Monday morning so I want to ask the right questions.
BTW-I like the fact that the imaging company gives me the results right away now instead of making me wait for a letter or the dr to call. I guess they know we're nervous after already having cancer.
