My results of my mammogram and ultra sound came back.
Good results. I think.
Impression: probably benign finding. Recommendation: recheck in 6 months.
While I am kind of relieved, I don't like that "probably" part of the finding.
What if the "probably" isn't probably, and I find this out in six months from now?
So I am talking to the doctor's office, and they ask if I want to make an appointment to talk to the doctor.
Yes, I do. The first open appointment is....August 31.
No. I say this is unacceptable. They give me another date, right in the middle of my work day-no that will not work.
"Fine. I do not want to make an appointment. I will find another doctor."
I was not threatening, I was just stating a fact. I'm a pretty low maintenance patient; I see my doctor about two times a year; I pay my bills on time; I'm a compliant patient. But I have had it with the slow turnaround.
They put me on hold. I'm just about to hang up (I'm in the middle of work) and I am informed I have an appointment this Thursday, at 8 am.
I want to have a biopsy done of this lump. My husband concurs. I don't want the "probably" ; I want the definitive benign reading.
I feel like I've been hit with a ball bat today. I think part of it is some stress relief; yet I still have some major annoyance going on. At least I have results, and it does seem positive.
Maybe I can get my head out of my ass and unwind and relax for this upcoming race.
