Well blog, I just have to tell you my thoughts & feelings - they say getting it all out on paper helps, so here goes. On Monday this week I went for my 12 month mammogram. So far so good. On Tuesday was my specialist/surgeon checkup appt (why they can't schedule appts for the same day for convenience sake I don't know).

Genetic Testing

Hi girls,

I have a query about genetic testing. I filled out the forms sent to me by the unit & they have replied back asking me to select a couple of preferences of places to go for an appointment. I have a choice of 4 hospitals with differing operating times for the service.

Now to my questions - do they usually ask u to select a preferred appt place & time etc as a matter of course or only if they think there may be something to discuss?

Damn Shoulder

Sheesh, has my left shoulder been giving me curry again today, but it is not as you would expect due to the cancer, well not solely...

Back before BC I was on workcover for recurring (chronic) Bursitis caused from being a "checkout chick" so was permanently taken off checkouts & giving other work that could be modified to handle the ongoing injury.
