Back to the scanner

After a sleepless night, I headed to have an MRI this morning at 6:30. Whoever was meant to be opening up didn’t arrive until 7 so I spent the first part of the day chatting with my Radiographer. I think I fell asleep in the MRI machine toward the end listening to the comforting drones of high powered magnetic pulses through my body. The Radiologist came out and said the spine was looking ok (they are looking for signs of spinal cord compression), but if I had time they would run a CT with contrast.

I had the time, so for the next hour I had to drink an iodine solution and then have a CT where they again injected and iodine-based solution into me. He said it was to check the lymphatic system, circulatory system, digestive and renal systems. I am not really sure what they were looking for at this stage, but I suppose it will be good to have it all checked out anyway.

Back home now and very tired.
