Hope it's okay to post here....some background: December 2010, had my first mammogram at 42 yrs old....had put off going. Got a call back, had an ultrasound and biopsy and everything was fine. Couple months later I find out I'm pregnant and had baby #3 in Sept 2011 at 43 yrs old. We also have two teens! This past August, the baby was 11 mos old and we found out my husband has stage 4 rectal cancer. Since the baby has been born, my mother-in-law has died, my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and our middle child was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
It's been crazy and I've put off going to the doctors and for a mammo - mostly because I'm terrified of more bad news. I have finally scheduled my appt with the gyno next week and will go for a mammogram in the next couple of weeks. I was thinking of going to the hospital that now has the 3d machine...but wondering if it makes more sense to go to the same place I had the first mammogram so it's a more exact comparison.
Do any of you have any advice on the different machines?
