Omg I'm so sorry to read. just have faith my energy is being sent your way. I would be scared too. Just keep in mind no matter what appreciate every moments regardless the outcome. The reason they call now the present is because it's a gift. Let me know the outcome pls. Good luck
I shall say a prayer for you. Please do get back to us after you speak to your doc?
Hope tis nothing atall. I would be frightened myself, don't blame you a bit for being scared!! Try to keep your wits about you if you can. (Easier said than done, No?)
Take someone with you to your next appointment. You may need another pair of ears if you feel frightened!!
Best wishes to you,
Please do let us know how it turns out, and also please try not to worry.
If there is a center that you can go to for your follow up mammogram that takes images like an MRI, I would highly suggest using that as it is more accurate than the old school mam machine. There aren't a lot of them but in Houston there is one. It is so much more accurate than regular imaging. Just a thought.
Please let us know how you are doing.
Best wishes to you!
Hi crazed50! I'm going to send you a white light of positivity, all the way from Peterborough, Ontario! :)
I'm also suggesting for you to try to think & focus on positive thoughts right now, crazed50. They can beget more positive ones. (having babies, so to speak LOL)
Perhaps make a list of 5 positives about this & refer to it when you need to. Can you think of a few? Perhaps such as: it's a very good thing to know when there's something not right with my body. My body needs my help now.
Post some sticky notes around your house saying things that will give you encouragement and make you laugh & feel better. The more positive mood surrounding you, the better! Laughter creates endorphins which help you to naturally feel better. In addition, exercise is a great de-stressor that'll add to your endorphin level.
I'm the type of person who wants to know the facts & issues. Thus, I can start working on a solution even that much faster. I'd rather know than NOT know. How do you feel about that, crazed50? Would it be better for you not to know? What then? What's the point of going through all the pain & discomfort of a mammogram if you don't use the information that this test provides?
We all can be scared or anxious about the unknown so~~~~~make it known!
The more information that you have concerning various scenarios, the better you should feel. You'll feel more in control & powerful, instead of being a victim.
Please try to be strong, use your inner strength. Use your family's love & caring to add to your positive feelings. Get & give lots of hugs! :)
crazed50, you've already seen 3 great responses to your question.
Please have someone accompany you; that was a great suggestion from sweet lemon!
Jilly suggested an MRI. This is helpful to "see" through denser tissues & would be a good conjunctive aid to your mammogram.
nicegirl stated that life is a gift & it truly is a precious gift.
crazed50, I am so very sorry that you're going through this right now but I will add you to my prayer list. I wish you only the best!
from Wendy :)
P.S. Please try not to feel so "crazed"!!! :D
Crazed 50, I wish you all the luck in the world girl. This is indeed a scarey thing. I have had a mammogram every year for at least the last 20 years, & 2 different times, had to return because the thought they saw something suspcious. The second one usually really puts the "squeeze" on you as like never before. It's a wee bit more uncomforatable, but not unbearable. I even had a surgical breast biopsy on one of them because they could not determine the complete cause. It turned to just be a cyst, & besides thinking the surgery alone was going to kill me, I was ok. Just a quick suggestion, if you have to have a surgical biopsy, which they don't do very often anymore. & have fibromyalgia, make sure you request to be put out.! My surgeon didn't know I had fibro, & I had a local. Well, let me tell you I felt every little cut, scrape, & pull. Needle prick and all.
He said to me,"I've given you enough local to numb up an elephant"! That's when I mentioned I had fibromyalgia. He then told me he would have put me to sleep for the procedure if he had known that because of being so sensitive. Today the usually just do a needle biopsy , which I here is not too bad. Just a suggestion. We fibro sufferers tend to be much more sensitive than others. It's easy to say not to worry when you've never had a problem, but I've been there, & have a friend that has survived breast cancer twice. Infact her youngest daughter in her early twenties who's had the gene testing done, & carries the gene elected to have a double breast removement procedure done. She's is a very brave young lady. Try not to worry yourself to death before you know your results. Deep breaths, & something to take you mind off of it. Today it is not death sentence either so relax. Please let us know how you come out. I apologize for not getting to you until the day of your appointment, but sick yesterday myself.Take it all one day at a time. Good luck, & my best to you...
