Mixed emotions about today so far
October 11, 2017 6:01am CST
This morning I had an appointment for an MRI scan at Christie hospital. The appointment was for 8.15 AM, which necessitated getting up before 6 AM this morning. Fortunately my transport arrived early and I was at the hospital by 7.20 AM. Apart from the cannula required to administer iodine during the scan, which I absolutely hate, the whole process went smoothly and more quickly than I had expected. I was back home before 11 AM, which I thought was excellent. Despite how fluently everything went, I had been hoping that today I would see the consultant and be informed of my current progress and prognosis. Unfortunately that will be much later and I now have an appointment for a week on Monday to see the consultant.

I always wonder why they don't try to combine things so we didn't have to visit quite so many times but no, that never happens. I say just enjoy the week and don't dwell on it, think positive thoughts, it is the best thing for you at this point.

I am sorry you have to wait so long to see a consultant because that really sucks. I've experienced several MRI's rise in my life and up there always quite horrible. The first time I kept asking them to take me out because I just couldn't bear the feeling of claustrophobia. I have to go and have another at some point soon because they're trying to find out what is causing all that pain in my neck but I think that they're just going to say that it's nerve damage.
