First mammogram!!!


Re: First mammogram!!!

Yes I'm up for that one!  Have a good 2016.

Re: First mammogram!!!

The best news! Here's to a healthy and stress free 2016 SJ! 

Let's catch up again in a year's time 🙂

Re: First mammogram!!!

Hi Herewego, yes all ok.  I only had one done as I have a reconstructed boob and apparently they don't mammogram them any more - much to my relief.  I took some pain killers so not too bad.  Mammogram definitely invented by a man though.  Onwards and upwards.

Re: First mammogram!!!

Good news, mammograms on both breast were normal so I've been given the all clear. Cue wine as soon as the kids are in bed... 

The mammogram itself was very painful and am I'm still hurting a week later but then again I got nerve pains all across the right side. So definitely recommend painkillers before hand to reduce any pain/discomfort.

Hope you get good news too SJ, please keep us posted x

Re: First mammogram!!!

Hi everyone

I had my first mammogram about 4 weeks ago. I was really worried.

I followed the advice on here about taking painkillers before they squash!

The person who did it was lovely, did my foob as well I think to put my mind at rest.

I then had a letter but not that immediate saying that the results were 'highly reassuring'

Those words made me feel so good and gave me, family and friends a really good feeling over Christmas


So don't worry, it was no different to others I have had. I do know they recall quite sharpish if needed


Wishing you all well

Beryl xx

Re: First mammogram!!!

My first mammogram
will be in May and I am already worrying about it! Thinking of you both. Chin up and let us know how you get on. x

Re: First mammogram!!!

Herewego, thanks for that and good luck tomorrow.  Let me know how things go for you.  Mine is next Thursday and I should find out on the day.  Just been for a walk and I have a 11 year old so there are lots of distractions but it's like a bad sore that irritates every so often.

Re: First mammogram!!!

Hi SJ, I'm in the same boat. First mammogram tomorrow and I have to wait until the following Tuesday for the results. On top of it, today is actually the anniversary of me being diagnosed... 


I'm also trying to keep busy and not dwell on it but it's hanging there at the back of my mind and will pop up every so often. My attitude is "new year, new start" and the mammogram is just a confirmation that all the treatment last year was worth it and I can really look forward to a happy new year.


Keep me posted how you get on xx

First mammogram!!!

Hi, first mammogram since treatment.  Any advice/ reassurance would be gratefully received. Trying to keep busy but brings everything back. Not nice!
