I'm here again
I had my annual mammogram yesterday. I saw the caller ID from my health care come through on my phone this morning and already knew I was getting called back.. they found architectural distortion with associated calcifications and need additional imaging and likely a biopsy. This would be my 4th breast biopsy. The prior 3 were for the right side. This is in the left side and I don't know why, but that freaks me out a bit. Two of the prior biopsies were benign and one was DCIS. For the DCIS which was five years ago, I had a lumpectomy and 6 weeks of daily radiation treatment. I am scheduled for the current imaging on 1/25. A year ago, they did the imaging and took me directly to biopsy. With my history, I expect the same thing on Tuesday. My husband will go with me this time. Last year he couldn't wait in the waiting room for me due to covid so I'm grateful that he can this time. I've had my moments today. I've talked to my sister and my daughter, and reached out to a number of girlfriends. My husband gave me a wonderful hug right after the call and assured me that he is here for me. All this support is wonderful and I am so blessed to have it. I still need the support from this group of amazing people who have actually experienced what I am going through. The waiting, the unknown, it is the hardest part.
