Okay, I did it. My first time ever I went and had a base line mammo done. All morning I was fretting about going, I sweated all my deodorant off, and just didn't know what to expect. The funny thing is , I work in the medical field. I have prepared many patients for their exams, now I was on the receiving end.
First off, it wasn't that bad. No they didn't remove my breast, no my breast was not made to look like a pan cake, and yes it was tad bit uncomfortable, and you can't breath when they snap the pic, but over all, I had a pleasant experience. The good news, it only took maybe 15 minutes.
I am fortunate to not have breast cancer in my family. But now days there are other factors that can cause this horrible disease. so if anything, I hope to encourage all my sisters and even my brothers to go and do it.
