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
