Karmic Payback

I knew I was tempting fate by actually saying and writing that the mammogram was no big deal. When I got home from work last night there was a message on our voicemail from the radiology center asking me to call back. For once I was actually hoping it was some insurance issue. I just called and it turns out they want me to come back in for more films due to some "thick tissue" on one side. Of course they can't see me until Monday. Of course I went straight to Dr. Google. It seems that thick tissue makes it more difficult to identify abnormalities on a mammogram. I'm going to try to remain calm. (ha ha ha) I now have almost exactly 96 hours in which to try to not panic and imagine all sorts of worst case scenarios. Thank you universe, I really needed something else to deal with right now!

I'm praying that this is actually nothing but the radiologists just wanting to make sure.

Thinkin' about ya.

For the love, can it ever be easy? I'm sending good thoughts too, and hope that it turns out to be nothing.

This was your first one right? I had a callback on my first too. It seems a lot of what the radiologist does (in addition to viewing the films) is compare to they last one. If you don't have a comparison, then they are most times extra careful.

Regardless, I know that doesn't worry you less, but sending you some good juju anyway.

Hoping for a good-news update. In any case, I'm thinking of you. Just had my annual wham-bam-mammogram yesterday (routine) and always say a little prayer I don't get any phone calls later. I can imagine how nerve-racking that is. Hang in there, and let us know how you're doing.
