Why is it that just having the simplest of x-rays can be so dam awkward for us. Went for X-ray on my lower back today, "jump onto the bed he said and lie down flat" mmmm!! if only it was that easy. He just gave me a funny look as I was taking my time and said "oh I'll be back in a sec" Ok, I got there in the end but it said on my form severe RA so what did he expect.
I mean, were having an x-ray for a reason so they must expect us to be a little cautious/awkward.
Don't get me wrong some are really helpful but just the odd one makes you want to scream especially when it's written in black and white.
I remember having my feet x-rayed and the radiographer saying can you stand on one leg? I have trouble standing on two some days I replied, they didn't find it funny.
Apologies if any of you are or no someone who is a radiographer this was just my experience today.
Moan over folks!!!!
