Doc's Office Postponed Mammogram

Posted by fiesty76 @fiesty76, Feb 21 5:48am

Received a call Friday from the scheduler who said she had some questions regarding my scheduled mammogram for next week. Had I had the Covid vaccine and if so, what was the date? Glad to report that I’d gotten my second Moderna on 2/5. She said that in that case I needed to wait a month for the mammogram because they were finding increased instances of swollen lymph nodes under the arms of patients who’d gotten mammograms only a week or two following the vaccine.

Mine was just the routine annual test so it was easy to reschedule. I was just surprised by her call to reschedule.

@fiesty76 It sounds like you are wanting to give other women this information. Did I get that right?

You will notice that I added this discussion to Women's Health. I did this due to the nature of the topic. This discussion is also part of the original COVID-19 group.

@fiesty76 That is an interesting side effect of the vaccine. I wonder if it was just Moderna, or any COVID-19 vaccine? Nosy me, I want to know how this side effect was brought to the center's attention, since I have not heard anything about this!

Yeah for you to have an aware imaging center, and hope you were able to reschedule for a convenient date.
