Unfortunately “M” stands for MORE tests…



Monday I went through my ritual having my 6 month mammography. It started as all the other ones do getting undressed, making sure you have no deodorant on sitting and reading an old magazine and then being called to the back.


Four simple pictures was all it took for me to realize that once again they found something on my mammography. The technician called me back because the doctor wanted two more views of where my former tumor was. I’m not going to lie but those two films hurt like hell!! I still want a man to expierance it just one time lol.I found myself sitting and waiting for about half an hour and then I was told to go back to the radiologist room. Once again I am faced with pictures of my breast all over the walls. I told the doctor they look like some kind of sick Andy Warhol creation. He then proceeded to point out the three sprinkle shaped calcifications that are perpendicular to my lympectomy scar. My heart once again sunk, because I knew what was in store for me. MRI? Stereotactic needle biopsy? Surgical biopsy? What will choice of tourture this time for my breast??


                  (Nice cans!!)

I am now waiting to see a new Breast surgeon but not for a couple of weeks. I am staying strong and positive but when is enough a enough? I just had two biopsys six months ago. Is this common every time I have a follow up biopsy to find something? I know my doctors where interested in seeing if there where changes this time around since my two biopsy yielded results of atypia cells.

I will once again play the waiting game, hoping and praying for the best



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!
