Many many thanks for that really useful info. I am thinking of paying for yearly MRI from now on. I've just been diagnosed with my 2nd tumour and it was only picked up on MRI. Thank heavens the radiologist was thorough.
Misspiggy: thanks for sharing your experience. I do hope you are doing OK
I have recently posted about MRI screening instead of Mamography and wondered if I may ask you a few questions?
May I ask how much the breast MRI cost? Did you need a referral and if so, from whom? once the MRI was done are the results reported back into the NHS system and you are under the care of NHS from then on?
Thank you so much for this valuable information. I hope you are getting better, I have a work colleague who has now beaten this horrid invasion twice, so let's all keep positive. I know it's hard, but we must try. LOL xxxxx
thank you for sharing your experience. I was diagnosed with high grade dcis 8.3cm, had a left mx slnb and LD flap recon, thankfully nodes were clear. I worry about how I would know if something started up again. One of my lymph nodes was very enlarged according to the radiologist but came back clear, though it was enlarged I couldn't feel it and it only showed up on the ultrasound.
I have an appointment with my surgeon in a few weeks so think I will be asking him for further explanation about what to look out for post mx.
I would happily pay for additional checks and scans.
Wishing you well xxx
