I was misinformed about my mammogram

Just got a call back from the lady at the health dept., who was looking at my results in front of her, and said whoever I talked to that day that said my mammogram was clean, apparently told me wrong.  Maybe she had me mixed up with someone else…I don’t know.  There are apparently some issues they need me to go back to retest for…re-imaging and perhaps an ultrasound as well.  And actually, I was surprised when I was told it was clean.  I’d been called regarding the original test several times and had the impression that it would need to be looked at further.  Anyway, it could just be because of the cysts, but it all has to be checked out since it didn’t match up with the other films.  I’m not worried, but won’t refuse your prayers.  Right now I have to wait for all the necessary referrals and all, and the lady who I spoke with is wonderful and is trying to get it all done ASAP.

Sigh…this day has been crazy…weird conversation this morning on the way home from the bus stop, with the father of one of Grace’s friends who was quoting Scripture to me practically the whole time.  God gave us a mind to understand and learn His Word…but then to use it to form our own words as well as the ability to memorize and quote Scripture!! 🙂  If a person does like this guy did…it’s just weird, and it was a feeling like he had an air of superiority about him, and didn’t even want me to speak.  Hopefully we’ll just cross paths, as we usually do, for the rest of the school year, rather than like this morning where we wound up walking back home at the same time. 🙂  Or if not, hopefully I’ll be able to just nod and smile and let him go on and preach away…either way will be okay.

Have a good day.  As always…love and blessings,

    I am so very sorry although I too am part of the mammogram been there done that oops club. Seems like there would be a triple check before any patient contact is made. I am saying some extra prayers for you and will pass this along to friends.

    Wow, you are amazing for trusting your intuition and insisting on appropriate confirmation. And of course, for putting up with preachiness. It happens a lot too in the Muslim community and drives me nuts. It’s like, yo, speak Englishnese :D. Hugs and much support to you!

      Thanks Pink! I actually didn’t call back about the mammogram myself though. I had called back when I wasn’t getting the results for so long, and the last I had heard at that time from anyone was that they were awaiting the former films for comparison, but that if they didn’t get it I’d have to go back. If I did, I’d go back if there was change or else be cleared. So I called and left a message, and someone called me back a little while later and said that my mammogram was clean and I was good for a year. All I can figure is that she had pulled the wrong person’s information up or something…somehow. The lady from the health dept. called me on her own this morning, as soon as she got the report back herself, and said that I had been told wrong. Ha ha about the Englishnese. LOL And thanks for the hugs and support! (((((Hugs)))))

    No point in worrying. Everything will be fine – you’ll see.
    Can’t pray for you, can I? 🙂 But I’ll send you my best, how’s that?

  5. You certainly have my prayers…and I can understand why the man made you a bit uncomfortable….while we are to let our light shine…I don’t believe we should not live and talk for the most part in the reality that we are in….quoting scripture has it’s place in a conversation that is specific to a particular issue at hand but not to an extreme…Diane

      Thanks Diane…and I appreciate the prayers. Got the letter in the mail this afternoon with the true results, finally, and also got a phone call to go back to the clinic where I was initially seen and referred for the mammogram for yet another referral. Managed to round up a ride there after my dental appointment tomorrow morning. This day has been crazy and I’m ready for it to end. I need and appreciate those prayers.

    such mistakes should never come up from people who deal with such very important aspects..

    sincerely remembering you in prayers & hope that you will be back to us with a clean ultrasound report!!
