Last week I traveled to San Jose for my second breast MRI and the first since having had surgeries. I am now on a vigilant semi-annual schedule of mammogram in March and MRI in September. Because I am still actively receiving Herceptin treatment and because I have been periodically poked and prodded by various specialists over the past year+, I have not been unduly nervous about the result from this last MRI. Indeed, today’s mail included a benign looking boiler plate postcard from Kaiser stating my “mammogram” findings were normal. Mammogram? Needless to say, I quickly shot out an email to my breast surgeon asking for the full MRI report so I could be sure I hadn’t dreamed up the entire claustrophobic, cacophonous experience.
