Re: Mammogram after Lumpectomy
Sula11, I would wait, but the doctor who reads the mammogram is generally not the doctor who gives you the results. It would be whoever placed the order for the mammogram. That is who you need to see. He/she gets the information from the official mammogram doctor anyway. If they still cannot tell, then they usually ask for an ultrasound, then they would do a biopsy depending on the results of the ultrasound. I would just wait. Guessing will just drive you up a wall, find a hobby, read some books, either way find something to keep your mind off of it until the doctor is back. Good luck. Roni.
I was in your place in 2007 when I was diagnosed with Stage1 HER2-, estrogen positive receptor breast cancer. I too was suppose to take anti-female hormones for 5 and a half years, but only was able to take them for one year. My doctor just cleared me even though it has only been 4 and a half years. My mammogram looked good and my blood work came back fine.
