    The Optimal Mammogram Center Experience

    Never having had a mammogram, I had no idea what to expect –other than the “flatten your boobs like pancakes” description we as women hear often enough.  So my morning routine changed a bit as I was sure to not put any powder, lotions, deodorants or perfumes on.  Having read that those can interfere with the images taken, I wanted to make sure my films were not tainted in any way. 

    So, I walked into the Woman’s Advanced Radiology Center in Trumbull, CT and was warmly greeted by the team.  They explained the procedures and already cautioned me that additional testing might be needed, and that was past the diagnostic referral my doctor has submitted.  They were informing me in advance, and assured me that would be done to get the best accuracy of imaging because of my dense breast tissue.  They added in, “It further tests need to be done, it’s nothing that should scare you”.  I did start to feel the nerves set in.  But in true Sue Ennis style, I brushed the emotions to one side, and focused on the nicely appointed waiting room and became engrossed in the days news on the TV.  Then it was my turn to step behind the waiting room door.

    The door opened to what I can only describe was the closest spa feeling that a mammogram center could deliver.  I changed into my soft robe,  had my own locker and changing room with magazines, brochures on the procedures and even a lovely gift sachet with trinkets – a nice touch!  —and immediately soothing and my nerves calmed.  Quickly went from there to the “tea room” where the assortment of beverages and snacks, again made me forget the reason I was really there for. 

    My name was called and for the next nearly two hours, I went from radiology room to radiology room…with a stop in the tea room in between – such a treat and a moment for me to recollect before the next step.  My diagnostic mammogram, went to the digital mammogram and then to the ultrasound.  Each person that ran my tested equally as great as the prior, a team seeped in compassion, trained and skilled, and with a mission statement on the screen savers, I could not stop seeing it from a business perspective…they deliver what the patient needs, above and beyond the incredible technology.

    Why all the details on this center delivery of ”my experience”?   The little things from this day onward became big to me and I started to just find the beauty in everthing.   Feb 23 could go down one of the worst days for me, but rather, I look back on it as a lovely experience!

    I went through every test…trying to keep control which I did just up until 5 minutes before I left with the “films”.  The breast specialist was clear that needed to get into see a breast surgeon as soon as possible.  I knew then in my heart, I was in for an ordeal and the possibility of breast cancer was imminent.
