A few days ago i posted about my anxiety with a CT scan with iodine contrast.
Well yesterday i had the scan with contrast and had no problems whatsover. I was however very very nervous and nearly backed out. I asked the radiographer lots of questions and needed a step by step account of what was going to happen. The staff were brilliant, gave me time and answered all my questions and the rest was up to me. Now i think what was all the fuss about..oh well
Two wees earlier i had to have an mri scan. The machine that the hospital used was a new model and was a little larger inside that some models There was also a mirror on the top and i was able to see around the room.
Going for these scans i have met many many people who have anxiety with scans of all kinds....i think it helps to talk about our fears and look for ways to overcome them.
I hope this helps anyone else with anxiety when facing investigations......
