I Wanna Be Sedated

April 11, 2008

When I went for the MRI last evening, I was told that it would take 25 minutes tops. As it turns out, I was in that damn machine for almost two hours.

Apparently, the scapula is a very difficult area to scan. According to the technician, the computer was “freaking out,” because there was “a lot of weird stuff going on,” whatever that means. Consequently, it took a lot longer than anticipated to get good images.

The MRI films better show something (not too serious, of course). I’d hate to think I went through this ordeal for nothing. I just want some relief from at least one of the various pains that are besieging my body. Is that too much to ask for?

    I’ve only been in an MRI machine once, for my knee, and I lay perfectly still and even then the tech kept saying I’d moved, and they had to re-image. I had not moved. They are nuts there.

  3. Hugs – and hoping you get some real relief soon.

    I hope that they find what they need to find so that they can do what they need to do to give you some painfree peace. ::::HUGS::::

    Whatever they find, at least that part’s over and you won’t have to go through it again. Well, that’s the hope, anyway. Egad. They’d better come up with something they can treat!
