DD Fun (or lack thereof)

The repeat mammogram lead to another set of tests. Ninety minutes later with a very sore boob I'm feeling good that this is most likely yet another reminder that in one more day I'm another year older.

When I was talking to the tech as she was changing out the compression plate (yes because I needed the largest one) I asked what these two small spots might be if not a lump. Most likely based on the location, lymph nodes that have somehow shifted. Really? I didn't think they could float to other areas.

When the tech was not happy with the first two sets of film, she had me move to another part of the radiology dept with what seemed to be HAL 9000's twin. This machine seemed to take up the whole room and needless to say this round of tests took my breath away. Not only did I have to hold my breath for the entire set of films, it really hurt.

I gave myself the day off from hitting the gym and running although I think going would have blown off some stress. Results will be back in the next 1-3 days. I'm really, really hoping for an early birthday present and to confirm that all is OK.
