Band-Aid ?

This morning I had a Mammogram. For those of you who have had this experience, you know what these are used for. For those who don't ( if you are faint of heart , click off this post now. We will wait........... ) For all you brave woman ( maybe some men ) who are still here, I will explain. These are placed DIRECTLY on the nipple. They look like a band-aid. Smell like a band-aid, and feel like a band-aid. The difference is, they have a metal ball on the end so the technicians will know where this particular body part is while reading your x-rays. After the procedure is finished, you return to the changing room. Now, for the dreaded band-aid rip! eekk ! Then, it was over. I wiped a bead of sweat off my upper lip and continued to put my clothes back on. I only lost one layer of skin; which in retrospect, isn't that bad. On the drive home I was longing for the earlier days when you were given authentic pasties with a silver stud on the end. You could wear those home, add a tassel and you were ready for a night out on the town.


  1. This made me laugh.. a little too much! I think you need a treat for your harrowing day!

  2. lol at least you made it through!

  3. Well that little bit of humiliation is all behind you now until next year, so alls well. Congratulations on your win - how sweet is that. Smiles


  4. I recently had a mammogram and I didn't have any band aid things. They had me place a little thing that looked like a tiny EKG sticker on my lump. My lump is huge and they said it was nothing. Now I am wondering if I got a second rate mammogram. I am going to have to look into this. I am glad I found this post. Thanks for sharing.
