It's pretty hard to get a deduction for medical expenses because, if you are under 65, the only deduction is for the portion of your medical expenses that exceeds 10% of your Adjusted Gross Income.  Basically, if your AGI was $24,000, you'd get a $17 deduction and you'd only save the tax you  would have paid on that $17, so maybe $3-$4.  If you are 65 or older, you get a deduction for the portion that exceeds 7.5% of oyur aGI.
