How do you have breast screening if you can’t stand up? I’ll be due for a scan early next year and I’m finding I’m worrying about it already.
Whilst I can still get around under my own steam, I find standing still very painful and tend to fold in half, and suffer severe neurological pain from mid to lower spine and across the top of my pelvis. I have to sit down or risk falling, not something I’d want to do while clamped into the scanner.
The scanner at my local screening centre looks like it won’t lower enough for a seated scan.
I can stand for a minute or so on a good day but that won’t be long enough for the screening.
