You, You, You, Not You

The other week when I was at my chemo appointment, I asked my oncologist to write me a script to get a mammogram.

Me: I need a script for a mammogram.

Onc: Why?

Me: It’s that time and I don’t have another doctor to write it.

Onc: Well you don’t need to get one.

Me: I don’t?

Onc: Not unless you want reassurance or something.

Me: Would you get a mammogram?

Onc: (pauses) … Well, I’ve gotten them.

Me: Is it possible to get another cancer at the same time?

Onc: Sure it’s possible but

Me: What does that mean?

Onc: Well I don’t know that we’d treat it.

Mother: What do you mean?

Onc: If you want to get one for your peace of mind but at this point, I don’t think it’s necessary.

Needless to say, I guess I’ll also cancel my yearly pap too.
