I had a mammogram the end of March and there was a spot.
Last week, I had a follow-up mammogram, an ultrasound and a biopsy.
And today I got the initial diagnosis of breast cancer.
So early, early, early days; and caught early, early, early.
Will meet with the “team” on Friday and go from there.
It’s a major relief to have the diagnosis – much better than all the stress and worry of not knowing. Now, we know and now we can move forward.
For once, I can only praise Kaiser.
Being able to go in for the second mammogram, have the ultrasound and then the biopsy right then and there was so great – and so efficient.
My left boob (of course, it’s my left side – if something’s going wrong with me, it’s going to be on the left) looks like someone punched it – hard, but I understand that’s a normal reaction to the biopsy.
So, seriously, y’all. I’m okay and I’m going to be okay.
As I constantly say (and as my dear husband has kept reminding me since the end of March) – don’t borrow trouble.
So right from the pandemic to breast cancer. Thanks a buttload 2021!
