    Request for Mammogram – against my Doctor’s wishes

    I had picked up two breast specialist cards from my OBGYN, and smiled as I saw one was the doctor that treated my mother wonderfully 8 months back with her breast cancer and eventual lumpectomy.    I promptly called the office to schedule an appointment for my second opinion, described the symptoms I was experiencing…to which the wonderful lady simply put, “The doctor won’t see you without films”. 

    So how to get these “films” when your doctor directly stated she would not send me? 

    Well, I called the radiology center right near our house and made an appointment only to be told that I needed a referral from my doctor.  I explained the situation and they said 37 is young, but a baseline mammogram is helpful to get and they confirmed my need to push for the doctor referral and request for my mammogram.   Needless to say, my OBGYN office got a call with one stern “Sue Ennis” request for the referral.  I knew that this could not sit on my to-do list much longer in my heart…it just didn’t feel right.  I kept going…and after calls and three days, I had my mammogram referral.

    How it all began

    What made me get checked out?  I can thank a close dear friend that started pushing me to get a mammogram many, many months ago once my mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer.   So it was on my to-do list for a while before ”the symptoms” came.  I can remember feeling discomfort in my left breast back as far as November 2009 and getting to a doctor was always on the “to-do list” and did move up a bit.  For one reason or another, it just sat there and didn’t get done.  

    What were my symptoms?  Not a lump as we are taught to feel for in self breast example.  What I felt can best be described as lumpiness and tenderness …most noticed when our 3 & 4 year old daughters would cuddle and knock into the breast.  After our November cruise passed, quickly came and went the December holiday season.  With the new year starting, I made it a priority to get a doctors appointment, which made me realize how overdue I was for my annual OBGYN appt as well.  So I called and booked the first appointment available for February 1. 

    I described to the nurse what I was feeling and the “overall lumpiness” that was present in the left breast in addition to the tenderness.  After again describing the symptoms in front of the doctor, my OBGYN was not concerned and directly stated she would not send me for a mammograph as they’d just “drive me crazy”, and that the lumpiness all over was unlikely to be cancer, that cancer does not hurt and she felt it was the dense breast tissue consistency that she felt.  I was not thrilled with her answer and told her I still wanted to know what the cause of the discomfort was…and she passed me cards for a second opinion if I wanted to see someone else.  (Thank the heavens I did not take her lack of concern as my next step – I knew my drive to get more answers would not stop)
