Another year, another check-up...
Good morning everyone,
At the end of last week I had my yearly check up with the breast care team.
I met with my doctor, who was the person to give me my diagnosis almost five years ago. I have met with him on many occasions since then.
It is always good to catch up with him, and he is always attentive, and listens carefully to anything I say.
Normally at this point he said I would be discharged completely, and going forward should anything arise I would see the GP and get a referral. However, I am still on the books. I have had a ? over symptoms, which have proved groundless, and we are going through genetic investigations etc, which he has instigated on my behalf, given our family history. So I will see him again next year, he has arranged another mammogram for October, and will arrange my dexa scan for next year.
I came away feeling very well looked after, I have always had excellent care from all my medical team. They are always positive and wanting the best for me to live well.
It was a good day, and parking was so easy, haha, that always helps! 😀
I do hope that if you have any of these appointments coming up they go smoothly for you too.
