Scared Stupid!
« on: January 19, 2014, 11:23:35 PM »
Tomorrow, I go in for my MRI. I know I originally said the appointment was Thursday but the moron at the MRI center gave me the wrong date. I'm having an MRI of the brain with and without contrast, which probably means I'm going to be stuck in that cursed machine for two hours straight. God only knows how long I'll have to wait for the results. This anxiety is killing me. It would be really nice to know whether or not I have a terminal illness. I've already been trying to live the last few days as if they were my last. Waiting this long has already been hard enough.

It won't take two hours. At least mine didn't. It took about 45 minutes to an hour but it will feel like a lifetime. They should at least out a tv in there for you to watch. The results should be to the doctor within a week. There are many benign issues that cause all sorts of problems. Mine was benign and i just knew i had a brain aneurysm.

You'll be fine. Good luck with the testing and remember to breathe.

I've had a few brain MRI's with contrast and they've all last less than an hour. I get results back quick as my health network is linked to an online database. My results posted online with 10 hours of the test. The radiologists read the results as the images are rolling in. If something is majorly wrong, they usually contact you right away. No news is good news.

Well, I'm all doped up on xanax and I'm going in in an hour. I pray there's nothing wrong. :sprachlos020:
