| | Has anyone had a mammogram since their augmentation?
Hello, I'm hoping for some advice and reassurance.
I had a breast augmentation in May 2010 and had a mammogram before my surgery. I've always had regular mammograms due to family history of breast cancer, and I'm now overdue for one. But I'm very nervous!
Mammograms hurt at the best of times, but even though I've had my implants for three and a half years, I still treat my breasts gently and never squeeze or pummel them as they are prone to tenderness. The idea of having them squashed in an ex-ray machine fills me with dread - and I'm also afraid of the implants being damaged.
Any thoughts please? Have any of you had mammograms? Any problems with them? Any advice on a reputable clinic in the London or Surrey area? I would expect to pay for it.
