Bone Scan along with 3yr mammogram and ultrasound
By way of a little background I have been getting pain in my ribs off and on for a couple weeks so I was sent for an xray which didn't reveal much. The pain started on the right side in a rib bone directly under my right breast which had the cancer. The last couple of days the left ribs and muscles are sore. I really felt…

They do have a website but you need to pay to join .... as they say .... "FUN, HONEST and ACCURATE!" The Recovery Room has a…
Scanxiety - does it ever REALLY go away?

So a mastectomy was on the table and as I was awaiting test results for BRAC gene I decided to go for gold and do two for the price of one - I do…
It's my 3 year scan this morning (at least I think it is - memory's shot) and I thought I was okay until last night when I barely slept at all. This afternoon I have an interview for the job I've been doing for the past year and with the panel, it's going to be a tough one. To top it off, youngest daughter rings me from…

Two-year scan clear
Yay! In spite of my concerns, the ultrasound showed no cancer. The mystery of my odd and discoloured skin patch remains, but at least it's not cancer. Starting to breathe again.
