Don't Wanna Be Caught Unguarded

My long postponed annual work-up for a Mammography and Breast Ultrasound is finally done, albeit being occupied with so many responsibilities. There was a scheduled date with my sister last Saturday but she postponed it thus the completion of my medical check-up instead. I have to say that this diagnostic exam is the most unpleasant medical exam for me. If only I can evade such procedure, I would. But there’s no denying I need it, so, that awful procedure struck me again. At least I’m done with it for this year together with the Breast Ultrasound. Sometimes, I get sick and tired of all these check-ups. But knowing that the illness that struck me was no ordinary migraine, I better keep myself fully guarded before the dead cancer cells come back from the grave. I’m blessed to have survived the big C for 16 years. Already declared a clean bill of health yet, I don’t wanna be caught unguarded if ever my enemy would lurk around, (I pray God would forbid!)

The result of my diagnostic exams will be released later today. Relying on the words of the doctors who performed the tests, I feel confident for a normal result again, that's with my fingers crossed. I’ll keep you posted anyway.

friendly doctor.

In the meantime, let me plan for my forthcoming birthday. I’m so excited to be celebrating with my closest relatives. I’m scouting for an affordable private pool in Calamba, Laguna. Any suggestion guys?

Is the diagnostic exam very unpleasant or is it just lots of hassles?

Congrats for being cancer free for 16 years! I'm sure you will get through this with a clean bill of health : )

I don't really dread mammo as much as the colonoscopy! buti na lang ang colon. every 10 yrs lang...it's the prep that i can't handle, going to potty every half an hr. almost. :(

let's pray that you'll continue to be C free, 'te beng!
