I want to send my everlasting best wishes and thoughts of support to all of you. For the last four years, the genuine caring and compassion shared in this community has awed and humbled me.
However, I'm moving to a new position and so I won't be your moderator any longer. I leave you in the good hands of Olivia, along with the beloved Nurse Jane.
Thank you to Jane, FunnyCoolLady, Gail, TLKittyKat, BeautifulBuffalo, Cheyenne, Someonewhocares, and everyone else for being a part of this amazing community. If you celebrate the Holidays, I wish you a warm and wonderful one.
Hol123, I know you directed this post to Jane, but she doesn't necessarily see every post. Even if she did, it might be several days before she replies, and I would not wait if you have concerns.
Instead, I would encourage you to communicate with the doctor who did the biopsy and find out what his/her expecations are for a normal recovery. Then, if anything seems out of line, your doctor will be able to help sort things out for you.
I can certainly understand why you'd have questions. The best person to ask would be your doctors or a liver specialist, such as a hepatologist. They would have the medical records and expertise to be able to provide you with some answers.
"In the latest findings to fuel the debate on when to start getting mammograms , new research adds support to those suggesting that annual breast X-rays should begin at age 40.
"Screening younger women has been controversial, with 2009 guidelines from a U.S. federal task force recommending against routine mammography screening for average-risk women in their 40s.
"The new study showed that mammograms were just as likely to find invasive breast cancers in women with no family history of breast cancer as in women with a family history of the disease." Please follow the link to learn more.
Will you/have you started mammograms at age 40? What do you think of this latest study?
