Digital mammograms are amazing things. No waiting, just the results – right away. Plus EPIC West rocks – they have chocolate to eat while you sit and wait for the radiologist to read the mammogram pics. (Deep stress calls for chocolate.) They called me back for one additional pic just to be careful, and I got the all clear. Whew.
And a sedative and a painkiller helped enormously – the mammogram tech kept warning me that it might hurt, and I finally had to tell her the truth – I was drugged to the gills and not feeling much. 😉 (Not that it took much to get me in that state, as any of my friends can tell you – I am such the lightweight. I’m the one who drinks a quarter of a glass of wine and calls it good.)
Plus the holter monitor tests came back normal, and with that and the normal echo my PCP was decidedly unconcerned. So, all is good for now. I feel like there is a bright future ahead of me once again! Yay.
