88 days til my love comes home! Woot woot! The time just keeps on tickin' by!
I finally got my appointment to get my breasteses looked at. I have an ultrasound and mammogram scheduled for May 1. Hopefully they will find nothing wrong and send me on my way. All I have to say is thank GOD for the women's health sector of the health department. I've been without health insurance for the last year while I'm waiting for a full-time with benefits slot to open at my company. It's coming up in July, but until then, I've had to just cross my fingers that I stay healthy. They gave me vouchers for a free ultrasound and a free mammogram. I had to pay for the lab work myself, but that is so much better than what I would have had to pay for everything put together!
Could any of my girlfriends here on Gather tell me what it's like to get a mammogram? I've never had one before, as I'm 28 years old and have never had the need for regular screening yet. Does it hurt terribly bad? How long does it take? Any advice or discussion about breast health is welcome here!
