Anxiety before annual checkup

I was first diagnosed in 1990 and had a recurrence in 2007 and despite the vast number of mammograms and ultrasounds I have had, I still get really anxious before my checkup. It just doesn’t get any easier as I get older…

HI Olivia
I was dx in September 2009 and still get very anxious prior to any kind of check up.
I think this is normal given what you have been through, it is your brains way of reminding you of past experiences.

How are you doing now Olivia?

Best wishes
