Well, yesterday I had my mammogram. I was going to go to work and go straight to the radiologist, but due to lack of sleep and a sick stomach from nerves the night before, I didn't make it to the office. I took my Mom with me (as she was with me last September with my first diagnosis) and found out that my long-term mammo doctor had dropped my insurance. They did the mammo and a sonogram for free, can you believe that? Anyway, (getting wordy here), they did the mammo, then a magnification of the new lump, and while I was waiting for the results the technician came out and asked me if I could wait while they called my primary care physician. She said he wanted to do the sonogram and needed an order from the PCP. So I waited and then had the sonnogram. Dr. B told me that the mammo showed a suspicious area which looked very similar to last year's in the other breast. The sonogram showed something different. It showed a lump with fluid in the center which could be a cyst or hematoma, but he did not like the peripherals or the sack containing the fluid. Lucky me! I have to have another biopsy and will find out on Tuesday when I see the surgeon when it will be. I really don't want to go through this again so soon, but if I have to, I have to. At least the fear of the unknown is not there this time, I know what I will go through. Funny how calm I feel today. Last night I wanted to stand outside and scream at the top of my lungs "Bulls*&^" but kept my cool. I feel like I'm in a fog. Here we go again! Just pray with me that it is not the beast and just a bump in the road.
Love ya all!
