Mammogram

Aug 04, 2016 10:35 AM

It's time for a mammogram, especially cause I keep delaying it. Anyway I would like to know if anyone else doesn't want to get their mammogram due to the pain? Or if you have had one, is it worth the pain?

Ugh. Yes I put it off, too. The imaging is done at an urgent care facility that, if I could walk, I could walk to. 2 1/2 blocks & it is free and I put it off.

Makes, I've had several, and even one with an ultrasound. Last year they found a lump and I had 2 mammograms 6 months apart. They finally determined it was fibrous tissue. Thank God for that! Some Tech's are better and less painful than other Tech's. Speak up and tell them it's too tight if you must. I certainly have. Good luck. Hugs love & prayers for normal results! 🙂🙏💕🌸

I've put mine off and can't any more. I have a rather large lump in my right breast and it's hard. I'm scared to go and scared not to. I have to bite the bullet though and get it done. We've all gotta do it sweetie, better safe than sorry. 💕🙏🏻🌻😊

@Alwayzinpain, you just made me realize how important it is to get it done. Prayers your way that the lump you are feeling is not serious. Once you get your mammogram done please let us know. We are here to support each other through the good news and the bad news but always praying for good.
@Lulabel, thank you for the love and support.

Thank you so much for caring and making me realize that no matter what I have my peeps behind me for support and I don't always have to be the one to take care of everyone that I need to let others care for me. It's a concept I was never good at, I was always better at taking care of others. I feel blessed and I promise I'll go and get my mammogram done this week and I'll keep y'all posted as to what it is.{{{Hugs}}}💕🙏🏻🌻😊

Ive been in the same boat. So i asked for an ultrasound instead of a mammogram. They don't hurt nearly as much!! I talked with my doc and my aunt who is a nurse. If they find anything on a mammogram they send you for an ultrasound anyway!! So I checked with my insurance and ultrasounds are covered if a Dr orders it. Ta da! I have my referral and now need an appointment.
