M is for Mammo and Monday..



Its that time again! YES, you guessed it, 6 month mammogram time this Monday! How time fly’s when your waiting on bated breath to see if your cancer free for another six months. Oh the joy of once again having my girls manhandled by at least 3 people with in an hour. GOOD TIMES! M is not only for mammo and Monday, its also for muscle. I will some how muscle my way through the physical and mental pain of it all !!

Usually the follow up mammos are no biggie. I go in chat with the women in the breast center about what’s been going on since I saw them last( they are like family),but after a cluster of calcifications bring discovered under my former tumor site had me a bit on edge. I mean I cringe at the thought of more biopsys. My poor boob has been poked and pricked more then a seamstress’s pin cushion! I just know the night before will be full of anxiety. Hopefully my next post will be a great follow up and the letter “m” will stand for magnificent results!!


About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!
