I Have Anxiety

I just had a new issue come up.

I had my regularly-scheduled mammogram on Monday. Today they called me - the test doesn’t look right to them and they want to do another one.

This has happened to me several times, so I’m not 100% scared about it. A little concerned. It seems my breast tissue is dense, and they haven’t always gotten a good reading the first time. Every time this has happened before, the second test came out fine and I was OK.

I just wish it wasn’t happening NOW. I’m a bit anxious about going to a medical facility - where I’m more likely to be exposed to the virus.

I have my yearly appointment due with the nephrologist soon and need a renal sonogram plus a battery of blood and urine test to be done before hand. Feeling much the same as you I don't want to go to a medical facility for fear of being exposed to the virus.

Aint that just the way ?

Something you hold your breath for at the best of times. And all the Coronavirus aggro on top !!

I'm sure you'll be fine. But i get where you're coming from !
I have have had that happen,too.

I get not wanting to go near a hospital.
I dont blame you for being a little bit nervous. When the virus broke out in February, I had several doctor appointments, two were mammograms. I have a third one this summer that I might cancel due to the virus. You could reschedule your appointment.

Can you ask if you could wait another month to redo it?

@Coralmist They seemed really insistent about getting me in ASAP.
