Really exhaling now
So, after the whole issue with is it a cyst or breast tissue last week, my GYN wanted me to go to a breast specialist. I'm good. It's breast just normal tissue. Apparently how you hold the ultrasound wand can make a big difference. Seriously folks. This was just freaking ridiculous. And one of the offenders was a doctor! And this all just gave me a little insight into ways our medical costs get increased. Overkill on testing and incompetence on several levels don't help keep costs down. And now, I think I am the subject of patientnapping. Where do you think I'm going for my next breast ultrasound in 6 months? Not that I want to go back to the other place, but the breast surgeon I saw today kind of lassoed me as a patient and I'll be going back there for my ultrasound. I feel more comfortable with her though. She's a specialist and with family history, that's where I want to be if something ever turns up. She explained more to me than anyone else had and asked more questions than anyone else had. Whew. I'm having a drink tonight - after my meeting of course - but I deserve it!
