Hello, all. Just wondering if any of you with pacemakers or other devices have ever had a CT scan? I'm going for one on Tuesday morning (long story...) and am getting mixed reports from looking online. Scan is nothing to do with my heart, so would like to be a bit clued up in case they haven't considered that side of things fully.
Also, going for an ultrasound scan the following week and have been told to down at least two pints of water 90 minutes before going in because they need me to have a full bladder. I'm on a 1.5 litre daily fluid restriction because of my heart, so that's almost my full day's allowance in one gulp. Guessing this is OK as a one-off, provided I try not to go mad with drinking through the rest of the day?
I plan to phone my heart failure nurse to ask her advice, but everything is happening very quickly/last minute so any insight from you guys would be great in the meantime.
