Re: 1st annual mammogram after BC

I've just had my fifth yearly mammogram after finishing treatment and I still find it majorly anxiety provoking -waiting for the letter to arrive is awful - I'm always terrified opening it.Hopefully you will get the results quickly and put your mind at rest .Jill x

Re: 1st annual mammogram after BC

I hope you are ok and that everything was fine. I can imagine your anxiety just going for your 1st mammogram after a year but to then to be recalled again for further tests must just have been awful for you. I have my 1st yearly mammogram coming up on the 1st September and to say I'm a little anxious would be an understatement. I had triple negative breast cancer so know there is a higher chance of it recurring  in the first 3 years which is playing on my mind.

1st annual mammogram after BC

On Monday the 3rd August I had my first annual mammogram after being diagnosed last year with BC, 

 

i was worried and a little bit anxious about it, but trying to be positive I thought there’s not much chance of anything being wrong (it’s only been a year right) 

but ive just received a letter asking me to come back for more tests tomorrow as abnormalities have been detected🤦🏻‍♀️

Im still trying to remain positive as I know this could mean a number of things but I’m getting a bit worked up now,😔
