I'm back to report that it was really no big deal. My appointment was at 9am and I was walking out the door by 9:30am. My technician was very sweet, too. She made me feel very comfortable for my first time. She made sure that the room and the X-ray machine were warmed up, so I didn't experience one cold second.
As far as the pressure applied...well, I expected pain but instead, I would have to say it was just uncomfortable... I was expecting the car tire backing over sort a' feeling...lol!
They managed to twist me in all of the necessary positions to capture the images. (I was thinking to myself, "How could they missâ€”my breasts are definitely on the large size")
I guess I am in the club now!! I'm here to offer my positive support !
Hey Kiwideus, about recommended age....I thought that women were supposed to start at 35.
(I just turned 36 last week, so I guess I am a year late)
katl8e: Wow...you had yours done early. Did your Doctor recommend it that early? Just curious because my Dr. waited so late.
Big Kat - I promise! promise! promise!! When it's time for you to go have yours done, you have nothing to be afraid of. I am such a BIG BABY about PAIN and this was no big deal, I swear!! No PAIN...just fear of the unknown at first...but truly, not a big deal!!
Thanks Again Everyone!!!!
