yeah i am the same way with tests. I am OLDDDD I do the boob squeeze annually AND I got
to have my very first colonoscopy cuz I turned 50 this year. I hate these age related tests because, to me, these tests, while routine
mean they are looking
I don't like the looking for stuff especially when things are fine. Last summer I had my annual gyno exam. God love my gyno but honestly this women tests for everything with the words.. "let's just be safe." I am getting older and with that our periods can get heavier. well that happens to me from time to time. so when I told my doc, "yes sometimes I have heavy periods." My doc says, "let's just be safe and do a uterine biopsy." I am like "UGH, really. do I need that. I mean doesn't it mean a sign of my age? doc says, "yes but let's just be safe." she did that with US of my boobs following a normal mammo BUT I have dense breasts and now, in ny, densely boobed ladies are encouraged to have US. UGH just hate that stuff.
Now when I KNOW something is awry, I go to the docs. And such things have happened. In those cases, while a bit nervous, I don't get whack a do about them. I think, "Yep, X isn't right. I need some doctorin'."
Weird how routine stuff is rougher in me than "Yep something ain't right" stuff is easier. Aw well.....
