duck as the food is being tossed to each other...and don't be ashamed of our raucous behavior as we travel with you! But a more devoted group you won't find. That is really early- good! the rest of the day you can relax. I am hoping for good results for you. Sending a prayer up right now.

Love you sister,
Kay

in NYS we get 4 hrs off for annual mammo / health screening. My daughter works at the imagining center she made the apps so I could do all 3 in at one day so not to need to take more days off...so mammo, then ultra sound followed by bone density...then to work by 12:30

Thanks all..i'll be seeing you monday ...

Denise

How exciting my first time requesting the bus...!

Denise, you can count me in for a "Pink Bus" ride. I have been on several bus rides & had several Pink Busses show up for my test and/or surgeries. These ladies are the most roudiest & loyal group you could have by your side for anything the doctors could do to you, as long as you feed them! HAHAHAHA!!!

The first time asking for "the bus" is the hardest, it gets easier after that. Sometimes you don't even HAVE to ask,they just know,and when you turn around; there they are! Cheering you on and partying loudly in support.

Hoping all your test come out A-O.K.

It's always fun to be there for one of our own. Should we wear costumes for halloween? And since it IS October, we could all wear pink costumes. How about Tutus in honor of Nancy?

I will come along and will be glad that I'm not the one being tested. I will bring some apple cider for you will be thirsty after all those test.

Hoping that all will go well, you will have a great mammo and ultra sound that will find everything normal.
Your bone density will be just where it should be for your age - good.

best wishes,

Doris

I have 17 messages I have not read..but I am jumping to end to tell you..I have never asked for bus as you know..I just got home from my Appointments (3 at one place)

I was told they saw something on Ultrasound (same side a BC 4 years ago) THEN Radiologist walked in and I KNEW NOT what I wanted to see.

So he said he could SEE area but not on Mammo so I must have BIOPSY...grrrrrrrrrrr he showed me the screen ( not huge but he said big area)

Last time i have the worse of the two type of biopsies (what he said) prior o laid flat down on table etc..bigger needle..this time will be in office where I just had this done. (my daughter works there and books my appt) I want it over with NOW..but I have to wait of course and must be off baby aspirin 5 days..

Thanks for all those who tagged along today..

We naturally always think the worst when something comes up, but the biopsy will reveal the truth. It isn't good to jump too far ahead. I am glad that you have work to keep your mind from dwelling on the time. It is nice to have a daughter on the inside! bless her! Please let us know when you are going in again, ok?

We didn't let go of your hand,
Kay

I am very optimistic even 4 yrs ago I said OH no biggie..they said yes there is something then this time I said NAHHHH it's ok...she said well DR will be right in...I do not dwell but I never worry about going for any tests...and I think to my self I am odd..but now I just want biopsy over. I do that with any procedure...even my front too being pulled a year ago..i took first appt i could get-kind of ironic since my WHOLE Family are all procrastonators..and I am not at all..

my husband went to dermotolgist appt today to check new spot on his back today..all good with him...happy to say..

I missed the post this morning,but if id known earlier i would have been there.I love your attitude toward all your test thats very positive thinking of you and thats part of our healing,it seems every time someone post something bad the first thing everybody Say's is I'm so sorry ,that gets you down right there off the top and i know they don't mean anything by it but to read 16 or 17 post and the first thing "I'm so sorry" at the beginning really gets to your nerves,i don't care what the Dr. Say's or what they beleive wait until you get the results and then figure out what to do from there.#just saying.~~MollyZ~~

My oncologist called last night and said she thinks scar tissue but it must be checked...she told me her staff will be the middle man for me to get this over..

Dr told me in ultrasound room 2 different biopsies and this one will be better then first one. (4+ yrs ago laid on stomach on table for procedure-he said this one I will be on my back) not sure what is different..perhaps size of needle??

I am praying that it is scar tissue Denise. Many, many times that is exactly what it is.

question on surgeons:

I am not trying to jump the gun..I may not need surgeon..but reason I am asking I had general surgeon. He left shortly after he did my surgery-no referral etc..

what do most here use: Breast specialist or general?
