Red silk kimono
Glass plates stand at the ready
The squishing begins
Went in for my annual mammogram/ultrasound this week. I’ve been a client at the same radiology clinic for years. The staff there is wonderful. They use heating pads to warm the glass plates, offer patients silk kimonos to cover up, have warm wet wipes to remove u/s gel, and will bring your shoes to you if you forget them in the exam room.
Several years ago, a routine ultrasound discovered a small lump. A large-bore biopsy was performed and found to be benign. To help keep tabs on the lump, the surgeon inserted a marker. All this time I thought that it was the shape and size of a large BB. I found out during this recent exam the marker is actually shaped like the looped cancer ribbon. Appropriate, don’t you agree?
Have you had your mammogram yet?
