The Women's Clinic because I had a problem...He said that it was not time yet for my yearly Mammogram. At my next visit which was two months ago, he finally scheduled the tests that I needed...a little late...I am now scheduled for further tests and I guess a biopsy. I still have to wait two weeks for these tests. They also did a bone density test because I told them that he had prescribed me heavy doses of Omeprazole. Never, never, never take this product if you are menopausal of past menopause. It causes osteoporosis even if your family is not prone to it. If you are prone to it, you will get it even worse. Don't take it even in small doses. I am devastated...I already had breast cancer on one side and now I am facing it again...If they had just done the tests sooner, I may have had a better chance at this. Once again, Do Not Let Anyone Tell You What To Do With Your Body. You Know What Is Best!!!!

(wants to give Adoniah a big hug) I'm sorry you're having such a scary time. It's awful waiting for test results. I hope you get good news this time. You're absolutely right - if you feel something is wrong, then keep nagging and get tested properly.
