Breast Exam Followup

Two hours, two squishes, two ultrasounds later and I'm finally out if there! Good lord that was trying!! So it's true. The right side is also in full mutiny. The good news? Due to my "history" it's just dubbed "simple" and I head home for another year! Yeah. No 6 month follow up!! I guess 6 years of continued visits and revisits have jaded me and I figured this would be the outcome.

Guess I should count myself lucky that they worry so much about the girls.

So on that note I'll be thankful for the pain in the ass that these exams are in that they can save a life with early detection.

Oh, and while we're on the subject of the lovely boobies and exams, I brought home the lovely BB Pasties today :D

They are sooo pretty, don't you think - they crack me up every time!  I mean, really folks, are the flowers supposed to make me feel better that you're flopping the girls all over the place and placing them in a vice grip while telling me to "hold still".... hum... even if I wiggle, the girl in the vice is going no where anytime soon!!!  Yowza!!  I also brought home a home exam shower card for the not so little girl to know what to look for.  Ah, the joys of being a girl, eh?

I just had my annual mammogram last week. I don't have "big girls," as you so nicely put it. But I HAVE had to have ultrasounds in the past. But not now. I would much rather have an ultrasound than a mammogram ANY day!! I almost put off going back for an annual mammo because I figured they'd just send me to U.S. and why not just skip the squish? But they haven't gone back to U.S. Sadly. Sorely. Squishly.
