Have You Gotten a Mammogram?

At the beginning of August, I was in to see my doctor for my physical and she suggested I go in and have a mammogram.  I  had one done a couple years ago and wasn’t impressed (pressed but not impressed) by the whole proceedure.  I put it off and didn’t tell my family that I was supposed to get a mammogram because I didn’t want to hear all the nagging about me going.

Well…I finally went yesterday and guess what?  It wasn’t bad.  I was in and out in 20 minutes.  The tech was wonderful!  She got all the photos she needed the first time around…I don’t know why I was putting it off. 

I asked the tech why this time was so much better.  She said technology keeps changing and that everything is digital now so it’s easier. 

If like me, you have been putting off getting a mammogram, maybe it’s time to rethink it…if you don’t do it for yourself, do it for your family.
