My Pocket Health

For those of you who live in Canada the website for accessing x-rays etc is
www.mypockethealth.com. Yes, this is a new service and I just found out about it when I went for my mammogram. The technician gave me a piece of paper with the info on it but I didn't sign up til I found out that the mammogram was abnormal. Then I thought I want to see what an abnormal result looks like and signed up on the website.

You need to create a login - user name and password and pay a ONE TIME $5.00 fee. Within about two minutes I was looking at my x-rays and reading the results and recommendations. I have a doctor's appointment on Nov. 26 and they have set up an app't for more tests and an ultrasound at a nearby hospital in mid-January.

I am concentrating on this bit of info:
"Most women will not need further testing beyond a special mammogram or ultrasound to find out their breast change is benign or a harmless variation of normal breast tissue."

I don't find I am dwelling on this "abnormal result" in fact, whenever it does come to mind it makes me think of "Young Frankenstein"!



Yuck yuck yuck!!

  3. Fingers and toes crossed it's just a fibroid or something like that. Everyone should take a keen interest in their own health - you are such an active person, I always think of you as one of the healthiest people I know! I heard cold weather is coming to Ontario and Quebec (or maybe it is just Hell Freezing Over based on what Ford is doing) - keep warm my friend!

  4. I had a "strange" mammogram once - a darkening shadow, if you like. Second time around it was fine. I'm sure yours will come out all fine too - at least you had the test, which is more than many do. Fingers and toes crossed. Anna
