Ultrasound Results, in Brief

I had a pelvic ultrasound the same day I had my mammogram, and the u/s results are in. I've got a small fibroid in my uterus, which is a non-issue. And I've got a cyst on my right ovary, which may or may not be a non-issue.

They'll be re-scanning me in 6 weeks, and we'll go from there depending on what the results are.

As for the mammogram, no results in on that yet. Word is that 70% of first-time mammograms need a repeat, and considering the whole fibrous-breast issue, I'd put that more like at 90% for me.

Looks like 2011 is Year of the Medical Tests. I tell ya, you get past 40 and the whole body goes downhill :P

I'm sure it will be fine. Just wait until 50 and the colonoscopy!

Amanda said...

Yeah, from what I've read both fibroids and ovarian cysts are pretty normal, especially in a female of my age. As for the colonoscopy, Choreboy just hit 50 and I've been on him about that, but so far no dice.

Gee, I wonder why... ;)

Hang in there girl! Proud of you for going and getting the tests done- it's not fun but it's necessary for your health. :) And I bet you look FABULOUS!! xoxoxo

Wishing for the best, sweet Amanda :)

You sound like you're hanging in there. I hate tests and doctor stuff.

Oh, Amanda, I'm sorry you have to deal with this stuff. While it's always a little uneasy getting tested and waiting for results (and probably worrying about the worst), I'm sure the news will be good.

I had large fibroids in my uterus that caused all sorts of problems about 20 years ago. Getting rid of them was great! My breasts are like two hanging sacks of lumpy fiber. ;-)

Sending good thoughts and very best wishes your way, Amanda! :)
