No News is Good News

Well, I have not received a phone call from either Women’s Imaging nor my doctor, so I think that the mammogram and ultrasound must have been okay.That is a relief. It is always in the back of one’s mind, that – maybe – this time – the cancer will return. Of course, with HER2, according to my oncologist, the cancer often returns as bone cancer. I do not at the moment know what symptoms would be. I assume pain in the bones.

That Wasn’t So Bad….Not

Well, the mammogram and ultrasound is over and I am glad it’s done again. Fool that I am, I forgot to cut back on my caffeine use for a couple of days prior to the testing, so even with a Tylenol 4, the pain of the ultrasound, especially the right side (the “bad” side) was excruciating. At least it was over relatively quick. The mammogram went well, with no pain, thanks to the Tylenol.

There were no gasps from the tech when she did the ultrasound, so hopefully all is well.

I expect if there are any problems, I will hear from either the clinic or the family doctor within a week or two.
