It’s probably nothing. They just want to double check, I’m sure. It’s good to get it checked and double checked, especially with our family history. I wish I had been told after the second set of scans and the second mammogram, however. I hate not knowing. It’s not even me. It’s my mom. I can’t think about any what ifs right now. Actually, I can think about them. That’s all I’m thinking about. Like I said, I wish I hadn’t been told that a second round was being ordered until after it was done. I can deal with whatever the results say. It’s the not knowing that is killing me.
In other news, I found out recently (before I heard from my mom, as a matter of fact) that my health insurance does not cover mammograms. I’m probably okay for another couple of years, but if I was at a higher risk, I would need to get one done now. With my family history, I have been recommended to get one now (I need to sit down with my doctor, however, and discuss). I don’t qualify for any of the free mammogram programs because I’m not over 40. It’s crazy. How does an insurance carrier NOT cover a mammogram??
Update: I just heard from my sister that Mom had the second set of mammograms and everything is just fine. I was right. Nothing to worry about. Even though I still worried.
