Any hits?
No, I take nothing not even aspirin. I do use supplements (CoQ10, alpha lipoic acid, green tea extract, turmeric, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, Vitamin D, and a few others). I have had a long held aversion to medicines and to doctors. This incident has warmed my heart to doctors but not medicines. I already like my family doctor - I knew him previously - his family sits across the aisle from my family, and my 26 year old son and his 23 year old son are best friends. He gently has led me along through this experience and I am very thankful for him.

BTW, while I had to wait with the ladies in the waiting room - they took me into the mammogram room by the back way. They told it was so I wouldn't be seen but I think it was to keep me out of the ladies undressing room.

How do mammograms work for men, or women with small breasts? IOW, if there isn't enough to be squished in the tortilla press, what then?

Ve haf our vays.

Actually an important problem is with women with very large breasts where the tissue blocks good visualization of suspicious areas.
