Bump for anyone needing hope :)

How accurate are MRI's? How good are they compared to Xray?


Im getting one on tuesday and have been scared sh!tless of Lung Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer. Im getting it for chest and back. Also the "specialist" says to comeback to discuss the results(70 DOLLAR COPAY!!!), plus I was charged pretty much for a rwferral thet my stupid GP could've gave me

Will the ppl at the MRI place tell me the results over the phone instead? Im tired of paying doctors who just keep bleeding me dry. Also is the MRI copay expensive?

Thanks in advance and Im glad you're a healthy individual :)

They make an appt in advance to discuss results. Usually a day or two after the MRI. My doctor only called because she had time and she had met with me before. Knew I had a daughter and I'm pregnant with second baby and I was in extreme panic. The MRI place people don't typically tell you your results. They leave it up to the doctor. That's a high copay, but peace of mind? Priceless!!!
I'm not sure if they will charge you a copay. My insurance covered my mris 100%

That is Great news so yes now enjoy life and that beautiful baby on the way!!

Mri's are very accurate and yes very detailed and usually see everything so they are the very best to have done out of the x-rays and ct scans.. etc..

Now if someone is having numerous scans done and nothing shows up then people really do need therapy and maybe some meds to help with the anxiety and panic and Hypochondria .  Learning to except that you are healthy while having anxiety isn't real easy though so that is where therapy helps and meds sometimes.

Congrats on the baby!

@ally Just like you I knew I had a cancerous tumor somewhere in my body. Just like you I also had (shirt drenched) night sweats. Oh and I also had unexplained weightloss and tons of other symptoms (name it I had it). Anyway, here I am years later.  I hope your tests bring you peace. If you need someone to talk to drop me a msg.
