Hi all

I went to the hospital yesterday for my Mamogram. They took 2 x-rays of my left breast and 3 of my right.

When they were doing this , 2 doctors were looking at the screen and pointing to things, I could not see the screen....also they were speaking in Spanish and my Spanish is not good enough to figer out what they were saying.

I was asked to wait outside and a doctor would call for me.

All the other people who were getting mamograms before me were also asked to wait outside. But when their name was called....they were told they could go home and the results would be sent to the docs in 2wks.

However, when they called my name I was asked to go into see a doctor who did an ultrasound....I could see clear black patches on the screen ( some round , some not so round, some a bit fuzzy looking ) from both breasts and she was taking measurments of these , I prosume they were logged in the computer as she did not print anything out.

She look about 7 measurements 4 from 1 breast and 3 from another.

then she told me in Spanish she was finished and I could go.

When I asked was everything OK, she said that the results will be back within 2wk....I think they will send them to my doctor.

They never took any biopsies. From what I understand the ultrasound can tell if its a sold lump or a waterey Cyst..

am panacking like mad now.

Does anyone have any clues????
