Mammograms are not fun.

I have some doctors visit next week which required me to have my yearly mammogram taken. Still 'Ouch', it's not fun even with implants. They won't do a mammogram of the breast that had cancer; but they took 4 pictures of the other. The last two, the technician had to push the implant out of the way to squeeze what was left between the plates. Still no fun. Hurts to see your breast squeezed down to an inch like a de-boned chicken breast.

I was suprised how little discomfort there was with my first mammogram last year. It'll be interesting to see how I fare this time around with my own implants. I was told by my surgeon that in the future a Cscan or MRI might be required for a thorough reading. My primary doc doesn't believe that'll be necessary. We'll see.

My biggest fear when having a mammogram is having my feet slip out from under me!

Not a nice proceedure for you but obviously your health is paramount. I hope all will be OK and you haven't suffered too much discomfort or bruising.

Take care sweety xx

@ Keri, There are always new developments in diagnostic procedures, but getting mammograms is very important.

@ Helen, I figure that since I had to stop all hormones, that that would greatly reduce any further occurrences of breast cancer in the other side. crossing my fingers.

Thanks. Sarah
