Update on my ultrasound

To catch up on what this is about go here and you can read my previous post.

I headed of this afternoon to our local hospital for what I thought was just going to be a simple ultrasound. I should have known better, because before I was out of there I had my boobs smashed beyond belief. That was no fun at all. The lump the Doctor found on Tuesday is high and in order to get it into the picture there was a lot of smashing, adjusting, smashing, adjusting and then some more smashing. I was okay with the first pictures they took where it is the basic top/bottom smash and the 41 degree angle smash. Then we had to do an extra one at the lovely 90 degree angle, that would be the side to side smash, not good. Not good at all, it brought tears to my eyes.

But the good news is that both the radiologist and the Doctor that reads the ultrasound and mammogram said that they feel it is nothing but a fibroid and I should just follow up with my Doctor and let her re-exam me in a month or so and go from there. They also made sure to tell me that those tests are not 100% all the time. At this point I was thinking "Are you contradicting what you just said?" They also said that my Doctor may decide to send me to a surgeon for them to make the final call as a precaution.

Now that, that is over I feel much better. I am sure that I can catch some extra deserving ZZZ's tonight.


  1. I'm so glad it's not something more serious.
