For years and years they told me,
Be careful of your breasts.
Don't ever squeeze or bruise them.
And give them monthly tests.
So I heeded all their warnings,
And protected them by law.
Guarded them very carefully,
And I always wore my bra.
After 30 years of astute care,
My gyno, Dr Pruitt,
Said I should get a Mammogram
"OK," I said, "let's do it."
"Stand up here real close" she said,
(She got my boob in line),
"And tell me when it hurts," she said,
"Ah yes! Right there, that's fine."
She stepped upon a pedal,
I could not believe my eyes!
A plastic plate came slamming down,
My hooters in a vise!
My skin was stretched and mangled,
From underneath my chin.
My poor boob was being squashed,
To Swedish Pancake thin.
Excruciating pain I felt,
Within it's viselike grip.
A prisoner in this vicious thing,
My poor defenseless tit!
"Take a deep breath," she said to me,
Who does she think she's kidding?!?
My chest is mashed in her machine,
And woozy I am getting.
"There, that's good," I heard her say,
(The room was slowly swaying.)
"Now, let's have a go at the other one."
Have mercy, I was praying.
It squeezed me from both up and down,
It squeezed me from both sides.
I'll bet SHE'S never had this done,
To HER tender little hide.
Next time that they make me do this,
I will request a blindfold.
I have no wish to see again,
My knockers getting steam rolled.
If I had no problem when I came in,
I surely have one now.
If there had been a cyst in there,
It would have gone "ker-pow!"
This machine was created by a man,
Of this, I have no doubt.
I'd like to stick his balls in there,
And, see how THEY come out!

OK gals, now that you have had your laugh, remember...Breast Cancer Awareness... Go have those boobs checked out and stay healthy! Pass the message on to your mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, cousins, friends, --- and even your enemies. Because the WORST enemy is Breast Cancer

I heard they are starting to do mammograms by ultrasounds instead of the squishing machine, anyone had it that way? My doc wants me to start when I am 35, just 5 years away. I hope there is definately another way by then!

I've been having them every year for many years and I don't think they are that bad at all. The squishing is just for a second. The whole thing is over with in about 5 minutes or so..... The "squishing thing" moves up automatically just as soon as the button is pressed by the technician behind the screen. She doesn't even have to come out... it pops up right away. There are a lot of things a lot more painful, IMHO.

I just got a reminder to get one next month. It's extremely painful for me as I have cysts, and my breasts are really dense, they are sore most of the time.

I'm due for mine...I get one every two years since I turned 40. The last one didn't hurt at all. In fact, the technician said that they shouldn't hurt now.

Well, all I can say is if I never have to get one done again in my entire life it will be totally fine with me.

I have been gone thru a lot and I mean a lot of medical tests incluiding 3 surgeries and nothing nothing compares to the pain that I have when I get it done,
well maybe it goes hand and hand to the removal of staples after my last surgery (withoyt anesthesia of course). :new_Eyecrazy:

I got the mammogram done in January and I am still sore from it, they better found a new way to do it without pain or they will need to sedate me next time.

If you are still sore after 7 months of getting a mammogram, something is wrong with the way they did it. This is not the norm.

I talked to my Dr about it, he said we are going to look into that later, right now still got some medical issues that are not clear yet. So hopefully I dont have to go to another one any time in the future, and I dont mean near future like 20 or 30 years for now
.... I know, I know...... just kidding...

I was overdue and had my mammogram today. I don't find them to be that bad, but I hate worrying until I find out if everything was OK. I went to a new Radiology group and after they do the mammo the doctor reads it right then and they come and tell you if everything is OK. I LOVE finding out right then. I was fine, btw. whew! Anyway, do you find out on the spot, or have to wait?

Pre-menopause, I had the same problem and just dreaded, absolutely dreaded, my mammograms. They weren't just uncomfortable......they were excruciatingly painful!

But then I remembered my mom's 9 year fight with breast cancer and how the surgeons carved on her body over the years until she looked like a week old Thanksgiving turkey and how she told me she let them try experimental procedures on her to help them learn something that would someday keep me and my daughters from going through the same torture.

She died at age 52. 52! And lived to see one grandchild, my firstborn daughter, 3 months before she passed away.

So, in memory of my mother and others like her who went before and endured far worse than a painful "squishing" once a year.............GO GET YOUR MAMMO!

Oh, Pamela, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom's death from breast cancer. And at such a young age.

I was an X-Ray and did mammos years ago. I was gentle with the patients and never seemed to hurt anyone. I'm not a tech. anymore since having the girls. Let me tell ya, years later I had my one and only mammo, the girl really hurt me. It was a pretty bad experience but having a mammo shouldn't be such a bad experience.
