Now that was not SO bad!!


Especially new dr's. And especially for the "well women exam"

I have avoided it for 3 years. Actually ran screaming from it for 3 years. Last time they found a lump in my breast and I refused the exam.

Seeing how many cancers run in my family I bit the bullet.

Well it was more that I was running out of my "stock" of prescription drugs and needed new prescriptions that prompted my search for a new family Dr.

AND I LOVE HER!! I really do, and her nurse is supper nice as well.

The thing I hate about going to new dr's is that you have to explain EVERYTHING, and the whole breaking my neck thing (I brought my xrays) and how I over came that. And my family history which practically takes an hour in itself.

But WEEHOOO done for another year!! And I will not be so scared next time. Although she found my lump again and is sending me for a mamagram (which I should be getting every year anyways) I am good for a year!!

good for you for going! please go get that mammo! i had a lump too and a mammo is NOT that bad. it last for literally seconds. my lump was a cyst but still had to be surgically removed. at least 80% of all lumps turn out to be nothing at all. just be sure to know your body and look for changes. (can you tell this is my personal soapbox???)

I DREAD those appointments. I mean HATE HATE HATE them. I always find them so awkward. I never know to keep making small talk or what!?!

I dont mind the appointment if it is a woman but the past two years with men in the Army have made it so horrible. I feel very uncomfortable now lol but then again what makes any of that stuff comfortable right haha.

I don't thinks mammos are that bad - I don't enjoy them but there are worse things to do. Glad you got a clean bill of health now make sure you go back EVERY year!

It's always relieving to have a good doctor. Mine is awesome and she's stuck with me for life.
