      Sometimes I wonder if waiting for results is the worst part. As debco148 said, you are being monitored closely and that is the important thing. I tell myself that I am being watched so closely that if anything does show up it should be small and manageable. Take care, adelia11. Let us know how it goes.

      I think we are all nervous every year when it's time for the mammogram, but each year it gets a little less scary. I am six years out now but I still have a friend go with me and we go out to eat and celebrate when it's over. My surgeon always writes the orders so that the radiologist reads it right away and gives me results before leaving. That really helps. Good luck

    I am glad you shared your 5 years..I needed to read that. I am 60, and have the same diagnosis. However, I was one year past surgery September this year. What lasting weird symptoms did you have a year out??

    Would like to know if others, 1 year past breast cancer, have had strange breast appearance or other side effects post treatment?

      Did you have orange peel texture before radition? This is classic sign of IBC, are you going to have masct?

      I had a mammo also and my IBC was not on the film. Get checked right away for inflammatory breast cancer as it is very aggressive.

      No orange peel but hard scar lumps of the scar tissue. My surgeon said that heavy massage will help and I since I have been doing that I have noticed a difference .
