I had a mammogram recently. The tec saw I had a VNS and asked what it was. When I told her she wanted to know if it was ok to have a mammogram. I had breast cancer so she wanted to make sure she got good x-rays and had to take them from many angles. I know the tec was pretty nervous about doing it.

My neuro, or any other dr, has never said anything about having a mammogram with a VNS. I've never had problems with getting a mammogram either and I've had several. Has anyone else been told anything about it?
