Hi Everyone,

I'm scheduled for a mammo later this month. I have not heard back from the breast center (yet?) about any cancellation.

I am high risk and on a 6-month mammo, US / MRI schedule followed by my (high-risk) Dr. appointment.

I am curious to know what other high-risk folks are doing during these strange times for their mammograms.

Thank you

I had one on 5/13 in Kansas. Tech and I were the only ones in the building (that I observed at least). We both had masks on. I felt completely safe, and the procedure went well. Got my negative results the same day. Oh, and I couldn't just walk into the clinic. Had to call a special number and wait for the technician to open the door for me.

Life is what happens while we're making other plans. Dx 10/18/2011, IDC, Right, 1cm, Stage IIA, Grade 1, 2/21 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2-
