I am SOOOOOOOO Done with MRIs

I took 1.5 of the Ativan pills and it seemed to work okay. I made it through all 3 of them without sreaming "Get me out of here". I had to tell the tech that I was freezing to death and she gave me a blanket. In total all of the tests took about an hour and a half. I was still pretty groggy when we got home and took a 2 hour nap. I am still not right yet. Had soup for dinner.

I have done open MRIs before but was told that the resolution of the test would not be good enough unles it was a closed one. I have to use the larger tube because I am sooo claustraphobic. I have heard that they are coming out with an MRI where you can stand up or sit down. Wow can't wait for that one..

I should be able to get some results in a day or 2. I can call my oncs assistant and ask for the results of the Brain MRI.

I don't go back to the neuro until Nov. so I probably wo't get the reults from the spin MRIs until then. I still have to have a nerve function test done in his office on Oct 26.

Thanks for all the prayers, hugs and encouragement. I made it whoot whoot

Hugs to All

I'm glad the Ativan helped Donna. I bet everyone has to take something before having a MRI. I know I do. I always joked that I might show up drunk and they said ok, just don't get sick on us. LOL Although, I don't think the contrast dye and alcohol would be a good combo.

Praying that you will get good news.

Hugs, Jan

Whew! You are done with them! Hoping and praying to read good news on your tests. Can't you get all of the results sooner on all of them? Or, do you just want to wait?

Hugs, Noel
