Re: First Mammogram after Completing Treatment

Hi, glad to hear you have had your mammogram and that the results are what you expect. As the other ladies have suggested, it seems that all hospital are slightly different, I was told by my breast care nurse that I won’t have mine until a year after the radiotherapy treatment finished, so even though I had my surgery on 3rd October 2019 it will be April 2021 before I expect to be called!

Re: First Mammogram after Completing Treatment

I’ve just had annual mammogram - 1 yr and 1 month after surgery date. 
2 weeks on and waiting for result. 
I’m hopeful as last year after 1st mammogram I had letter in 10 days for recall .......

Hi 

My consultant said it is a year after surgery, but it could be different in different hospitals.

I just had mine and am awaiting the results. 

Good luck

Re: First Mammogram after Completing Treatment

I’m thinking a year from Surgery ? In my case I had op last year ( aug 1st ) and was clear 3 weeks later - have phoned as I was worried about backlog for mammogram ( Covid ) 

Ive been told I am due one any time now  as it is annual - backlog is 3yr routine .

Re: First Mammogram after Completing Treatment

Hi Pirate Muppet - I was diagnosed December 2016, had chemo then surgery, and my mammograms are usually in November each year (so diagnosis anniversary, rather than surgery). I agree with Jaybro, give your BCN a call as each hospital seems to do things differently.

I hate that time, so big hugs to you and everyone about to have their annual mammogram.

Hi PM

Congratulations on getting through all that. Mine was 12 months after surgery and I’ve just had that dreadful sinking feeling as I realise my second is due soon and I HATE mammograms! The simplest thing would be to email your breast care nurse - she’ll know hospital policy and whether there are likely to be delays owing to pandemic backlog. X

First Mammogram after Completing Treatment

Hello 

I was diagnosed last September 2019 with Grade 3 invasive ducal carcinoma, ER+. I had a mastectomy October, then chemo starting January 2020 followed by 15 rounds of radio commencing in May 2020. I was wondering when I would be called for my first mammogram following diagnosis, will it be a year from when I was first diagnosed or a year from when I finished treatment?

Many thanks
