1st Mammogram post op



Recommended Posts

Today I went for my first mammogram since I had my gastric bypass last Oct. While I'm standing there with one of my boobs in the machine the very young tech says to me, "Uh, I need to ask you something. Did you lose a lot of weight since you were here last year because I didn't see any scars from a reduction and looking at your results from last year your breasts look a lot smaller." I told her "yes, over 100 lbs." She said , "oh, I better put that on your paperwork or the doctor is going to think I got the wrong patient." I told her, "Oh, Dr G has been looking at my boobs every 6 months for over 10 yrs now...don't tell him and see if he figures it out." I just looked at the report online and normally it starts out with, "breasts composed of mostly fatty tissue." No such mention this year!

At my first post-wls mammogram, I realized that getting the mammies squished didn't hurt anymore!

I am about to have my first mammogram ever on the 23rd. I am a B cup now. I used to be an H cup and the thought of getting those squished made me nervous. lol.

I had my first mammogram just prior to WLS and I was a DD. I was surprised because they weren’t squished at all like I was expecting. The tech told me that the new technology doesn’t require much pressure, and the breast doesn’t need to be particularly flat, so no squishing

I my first mammogram last year, it did not hurt. I have one Friday pre-op. I will not have one until next yr and I already know mine will be smaller. When I was thin (cannot wait to be that again). I was boob-less. My cousin would say I had acorns lol.
