Hannah --- my lumpectomy was in February and radiation ended May. Had my first Mammogram a couple of months ago --- they took a million pictures. The radiologist said this is "the baseline Mammogram" as my breasts are so different now with the scar tissue etc. They need it to determine current changes for future mammograms. So I wouldn't worry about this first one -- my radiologist wasn't worried about anything she saw.
I guess it's normal for our cancer breast to still be weird. Mine is lumpy and just heavy and weird feeling. And my areola is still brown. Seems like it should be well by now. If I give myself a breast examination now I'll be horrified because it's so different. I still haven't done that -- just scared -- not ready to go through treatment again - still tired from the shock of the whole thing.
I also had LCIS which is scary. Didn't expect that additional risk.
Are you going to have yearly MRI's because of the LCIS?
