When I finished my radiation treatments in February my radiation oncologist said he'd arrange for a one year follow up mammogram for me. It was to be scheduled sometime around June 22nd.

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a crazy organized planner so naturally as of this week my still not having an appointment for a mammo has not sat well with me.

I called my RO's scheduling secretary to ask her about it. She told me I should have heard from the clinic already. So I called the clinic. They don't have an appointment for me, nor do they have a requisition.  I explained that I'm going to need an appointment within a week or so as I'm scheduled to see my RO on July 13th to get the results.  The receptionist told me that they were booking into the end of July but I could have my RO's office call to see if there was a cancellation.

At this point I'm doing my level best to control my anger and tears. The END of July?! No, not acceptable. I'm on pins and needles worrying about this. I have an appointment with my Dr that I'm not interested in pushing back. More importantly, I'm looking forward to having the summer I was robbed of last year and I don't want it marred with a bunch of Dr's appointments and tests.

So I called my RO's secretary back again and explained what the clinic said. She called the clinic and called me back 10 minutes later.

My mammo is next Wednesday!

Could this be a sign of things turning around in my favour? Let's hope!!
