No matter how many times I do this, my ‘active monitoring’ scans are always anxiety making. Today is the six monthly ultrasound and chest x-ray.
Ultrasound – Quickly seen and the scans are looking OK (according to the lovely consultant).
Chest-xRay – In and out quickly. All done. Now to wait to see the sarcoma consultant with my results next week.
But that annoying little voice in my head is still saying ‘aha, the little calcifications didn’t show up on the ultrasound’! I only have a mammogram every year as the exposure to radiation needs also to be limited and the risks weighed up against everything else.
I’ll quiet that little voice – SHUT UP!
