nothing like getting felt up by a machine
Luckily the place I go to has a very nice woman who actually has the perfect personality for a mammo tech... It's embarrassing enough to stand there exposed... if you had a tech who was a bitch it would really be a sucky experience.
My tech.. Rose was very nice and kept up a running commentary during the entire process- I guess to help me feel more comfortable...she was awesome. She was the same one who did my last mammo 2 yrs. ago. Why is it that those rooms and the machines are always freezing? I got to thinking about it and it must get kinda boring looking @ boobs all day...in the past they always used these little sticky things that they put on your nipples... but this time they didn't (thank God). I've always kind of wondered why they even bother giving you a gown... as soon as you get in the room you have to slip half of it off so they can smash one side in the machine...
In any case... if you haven't scheduled your mammo... DO SO... it doesn't take that long & it could save your life. :)
