Mammogram after ACDF HINT

I had a mammogram on January 2 and was called back for another one with the radiologist present.
Scared me to death. The hospital has a newer 3D machine and the shield requires you to turn the neck more.
Because of my fusion, the side ways neck motion is more limited and they couldn't get enough tissue. No body
asked if I had neck surgery but this tech did. We got the pictures by having me bend my neck back. Clear picture
and no breast issues. Just thought I'd pass this on so you can be prepared to adapt and tell the tech ahead of time.
