A mammogram on a palpable lump is not the correct action to take, and the radiologist did not even get the lump on the film, which could actually be seen with the naked eye, and then called the lump 'benign,' and instructed me to check back in 6 months. After watching it then grow rapidly I went through all the authorizations and appointment making to see a specialist as I had a gut feeling something was wrong. I had an aggresive infiltrating triple negative ductal carcinoma which had been left to grow for 5 full months. After 14 weeks of aggresive chemotherapy, double mastectomy and numerous reconstruction surgeries I am left with neuropathy from the Taxol (chemo drug) and Major Depressive Disorder. Complicating this is the narcotics I must take for the pain. And, of course, I have a medical malpractice lawsuit. I must say I like my psychiatrist but he has me on Lamictal for the depression. I am not bi-polar and I am still terribly depressed. HELP??
