Physical Exam, Pap Smear, and Mammogram

The day started out well. I woke up well rested and had time for a shower and breakfast before my doctor appointment. I was not late! And thanks to all the rest I have had my stress levels are low and I had little anxiety going into the exam. The physical exam didn't stress me out, and even the Pap smear was not too uncomfortable. In the past these exams have caused me a lot of stress and anxiety.

The last appointment was for my mammogram. The technician was very nice and explained everything she was doing. But the procedure still required a lot of standing. At first I was OK but the longer I stood the more the my knees hurt. She let me sit and recover between pictures, but still, by the time she was finished I was in a lot of pain. I had to sit and rest two times just to get out of the building and into my car.

Then I had to go shopping for cat food. (The cats were looking hungrily at me before I left.) I'm making little pain noises every time I stand up or sit down. My left knee almost gave out when I came up the stairs.

I should probably go back to bed and rest.

I hate knee pain. My left knee is finally beginning to feel better after hauling things up and down stairs during the move. I still lie with a pillow under it to ease the ache.

They really should be designed better, IMHO.
