[IP] What about Mammograms?



> I recently had a mammogram and I asked if I should remove my pump and the
nurse said,"No need to, it will be fine". So I didn't, now I'm reading that
is is reccommended to do so even for X-rays. Should I be concerned and
should I call my Dr. and let them know?
Thanks
Adele
