I just don’t see how it is possible technique wise after mastectomy to screen using mammogram which is usually the most effective method of catching cancer at its earliest stage. The nurse at my breast clinic said it would be using ultrasound. Ultrasound wouldn’t be able to detect such things as micro calcifications, which is what was detected via mammogram for me which then lead to discovering my LCIS. I guess I can push for an MRI but without reconstruction done, how is that technically possible.
