First mammogram since diagnosis and treatment is Monday. How many ways to say I am nervous? Used to be routine. Not any more. Taking my husband along for support.

    Out of everything thing I've done that mammogram made me the most nervous. But it was pure joy when it came back clear. God Bless and good thoughts for your mammogram.

    Just had my first mammogram a year since diagnosis and treatment -- and thought I was looking forward to it as something "concrete" (as opposed to a quick look and "how's it going" kind of check-up) -- but then became a bit nervous when they asked me to stay to take some "extra pictures." As it turned out, everything was fine. Apparently what they saw (and just wanted the "extra pictures" to be absolutely sure) is something called an "oil cyst." These can develop as a result of the surgery and are no big deal -- absolutely benign. So, I'm sending positive vibes that you, too, will have "concrete" evidence that all is well. (And give that hubby and extra big hug! Mine passed away totally unexpectedly just a few weeks ago -- so it was kind of an empty feeling not to be able to give him the good news. He'd been so worried about me. Please be sure to celebrate your good news with your husband.)

      Wow... So sorry about your loss... How bittersweet it must have felt to get the great news and not be able to celebrate with your husband. I wish you the best. Hulie
