I'm due to have my 1st mammogram, and my naturopath said it's like having your breast slammed into a door. OUCH!
Then she said to be firm with the technician and say, "I understand you are pressured by the radiologist to get my breast as flat as you can to get the best image you can, but I want to say that I'm in control of how tightly you will compress my breast and I will tell you when to stop. I will be the one who faces any repercussions from having a faulty mammogram."
Have you ever done this?
What have your experiences been with mammograms?
