Saw gynecologist for a cyst on my left ovary. This day was a follow up appointment to discuss findings beyond abdominal CT scan w/contrast, pelvic ultrasound, MRI and blood work to rule out ovarian cancer. Per Dr. Stephen Hilgers at Methodist in Houston, all clear for ovarian cancer. Suggested I go for routine mammogram in same building and to just walk in without an appointment. It had been three-four years since last mammogram.
Tech called me on cell phone twenty minutes after leaving saying I need to come back, they need more images. I asked why (thinking they made a mistake in getting the images) and was told they see something suspicious. I asked if I should worry and she told me it was too early for that.
Then the nurse from Dr. Hilgers’ office called and said not to worry but that I needed to get back ASAP and she would help me set up an appointment for the following day. I told her I didn’t want to, that I needed time to digest what they were telling me. We agreed to wait for Wednesday.
