Clear!!!! I'm not sure if this means I'm dancing with Ned but I'm so relieved that it's over. I felt so sorry for the tech, though. I walked in the room and just started crying and saying how scared and nervous I was. She was so awesome to me. I kept apologizing over and over for crying. I also ran into the tech who did my mammo last year when cancer was found. She recognized me and gave me a big hug!

So for those of you coming up to your first mammo, good luck. I think the apprehension is way worse that the mammo itself!

    Such great news. How long
    Such great news. How long is it before your first post treatment mammo? I still have 10 rads treatments ad I was scheduled some ime ago for a mammo to take place on July 2. Today the surgeon's office called from the breast center to say there is no way a mammo is done that soon after radiation, they would do it in Dec. I assured her I didn't suggest it, the surgeon did on my last check up some months ago. Is it usually done well after the completion of treatments? I did 4 cycles of chemo before rads. I get paranoid when one hand in the dr's office doesn't know what the other is doing.... Thanks for any help you can give.

    I was told they have to wait a year and a day
    for the mammo. That will be June 29th for me. And I'm totally expecting it to be clear. If it's not I'm definitely falling apart...

    Six months
    My radiologist scheduled it for me 6 months after my radiation was completed. You really need to heal from radiation before a mammo should be done. I couldn't imagine having a mammo that close to completing radiation. Plus today was almost my one year from having my mammo done that caught the cancer in the first place.

    Gayle, you are almost at the finish line!!! You go girl!!
