I attended last week for my annual mammogram following breast cancer treatment in 2010-11.
I wish to thank the radiographer for her kindness and professionalism- this is an extremely painful process due to scar tissue and other issues in the affected breast, it's also an anxious time as there is always a fear of recurrence of the cancer. the radiographer saw me on time, introduced herself, and made the procedure as quick as possible whilst ensuring that the imaging was correct- she was reassuring and obviously had empathy for what I was going through.
I received my results this week directly from the breast care nurse- the quickest that I've ever had the results from a mammogram- which again has cut out a great deal of anxiety. Happily the results showed all was fine.
Many thanks to the team.
