Gone are the days of waiting bored and watching paint dry in waiting rooms at doctor’s offices. The only thing you have to do now is stake your claim early to the plug!! I am sitting at MD Anderson Cancer Prevention Center today for my annual mammogram and exam. Yeah, I drive 200 miles to get it done. The idiots in SA didnt’ seem to install confidence and were ready to biopsy me without good films. Not to mention they couldn’t find my right breast when i went to pick up my images to head to Houston. How can you lose a boob? Especially one of mine!
Anyway, I am sitting here in a lovely waiting room in a corner with a comfy chair and good a/c trying desperately not to think about the fact they are going to be squashing my boob like a ball of masa in a tortilla press in about an hour or so. My boobs are legend in some zip codes so I am not just exaggerating here. It is totally possible to smash a boob no matter how big to basically a 1/4 in thick pancake between two plastic plates. AGONY! They hurt already and I haven’t been touched.
Hopefully this year we do not have any crazy micro calcifications that cause me to have to stay over for another biopsy and a full week of “losing my shit” until i get results. Last year I was ready to just have them removed I was so stressed out. I had convinced myself that having them removed was at that point less stressful than waiting for lab results. It was a joy for all that week, I think Sarah is still suffering from PTSD due to my insanity.
This is a nice place though and a world renown clinic so if you have to get smashed somewhere it might as well be here. The only thing that would make it better is if they had a wine bar I could just get sloshed at while I waited.
