The entire mammogram, from paperwork to exit, took fifteen minutes. The imaging itself took seven.
I took 2 extra strength Tylenol an hour before and had no pain, just discomfort. But nothing crippling — the technician and I talked the entire time.
The test was free with WM’s insurance. He put me on his plan a few years ago for one year so I could have fertility tests done for cheap/free and I never went back to my own plan. People, I am clinging onto his health insurance like a barnacle with over-attachment issues. I opted for the 3D portion. It isn’t covered, but that is $60 and they won’t send a bill for at least a month.
If it’s good, I get a letter in a week. If it’s bad, I get a phonecall. Please Mr. Postman…deliver de letter the sooner de better…
And now to the TotalGym. Can’t break the streak…
I’m soooo glad that this test only comes once a year. Glad it wasn’t completely terrible.
Also, I can’t WAIT for there to be blood tests for early stages of other cancers.
And then we need to boot some poli arses so that all women are able to get health care, and on their own, just in case they need it.
