Mammogram Question

Well, it's that time of year again....but I have a question before next week's appointment.  Can I have a mammogram safely after PFD and fusion of skull to c2?  Does the hardware (plates, screws, rods) interfere with anything?  Or should I wait until after my f/u appt. with Dr. B.?

  Very good question...not having had ne hardware implanted I do not have that to consider,.,.,.

But do call and ask  and then let us know what u find out....even the facility giving the mammogram should know where hardware can be safely located for this testing....
