MAMMOGRAM AND OTHER TESTS YESTERDAY

I had a mammogram and an ultrasound yesterday and everything was fine.
So now I don´t have to worry about the breast cancer returning for the next year.


After that, I had to get blood tests for the iron level check in a week.
I had nine glasses of different blood tests - and being that I have baby veins and not much blood, it took it´s sweet time to crawl from my veins.
After the first four glasses, and two nurses to take them, the vein just closed! No more blood.
Therefore, out with the needle, finding another vein, a new needle and they got the last five glasses.

After that, I had a heart cardiogram that was needed for the hemochromatosis test on Friday 4.

It all took a couple of hours and both Mum and I was so tired afterwards.

That's great news! I'm glad to hear about the result of the mammogram. Taking blood on the other hand...not fun at all. I'm totally cool with it now, but I had some not so nice experiences as a kid and when I was 18 and let's just say, me and needles didn't get along back then :). I hope the good news continue! *hugs*

Thank you darling♥
I am so happy about the results of the mammograms too.
As for the bloodtests - I don´t hate it as much now that I did 8 years ago: and if a weekly blood draw for a year will be the thing to keep me alive - who am I to turn that down?
Hugs♥♥

Such good news about the mammogram! One less thing to worry about for you!
I'm terrible with needles, I don't know how you cope with all those blood tests! You must be used to it by now.
*hugs tight*

Thank you so much Honey♥
Well I used to hate needles too, until it was a part of my ife for years Now I just tell the nurse to take the samples in my right hand and not "experiment" on my other veins, where I know there are no chance to draw blood..

I'll cross my fingers for more good news then *hugs*

I'm glad you feel well :) That's so good to hear!
I didn't sleep too well, but otherwise I'm good. Temperatures dropped again so it's starting to feel like Fall now. Not so excited about that :D
