They told me that the white spots indicate where your pain is - but it is not specific to exactly what is causing the pain, but gives the docs the general idea of where to look. THere are a lot of nurses on here, they can probably tell you better - my tech was probably giving me the short version to avoid talking to me too long!
How'd you do w/the scan? That poison they put in you made me SO sick within a few hours, I thought I was a gonner!
I'm sorry to hear you've been in pain for so long. I hope they can find some answers AND relief for you soon!
thanx Ducky for the info! i have the script to get the Bone Scan...but as of right now i don't have the funds to get it done and no insurance. i really do not know the status of my charity care assistance via the hospital; so i don't know if i can schedule it just like that. and if so, i can't pay a balance or co pay.
it is crucial i have it done...i just need to get settled down here right now...things are really bad and i don't have the energy or ability to straighten this procedure out and set it up.
having to tackle one thing at a time, but the Bone scan will be done before January.
have a good night!
I was better by the next day, I believe. Just down and out that day. I wonder if I was dehydrated and that made it worse......It was redish blue dye....poison.....icky stuff...
They did not pre=medicate me and I had trouble w/my feet and standing. Possibly the offer it?
How did today go?
for this bone scan, one cannot be pregnant right? it is radiation and Xrays? just wondering before i go ahead with it....you never know! and i don't know if they make you hand over urine samples the day of either?
if anyone knows...it'll be appreciated
thanks, i know! can't get out of the house right now, so hopefully later tonite or first thing in the morning.
i really don't think i am...i think all these weird feelings are related to the prednisone. looking poofy! and tired but can't sleep & have been hungry. so just to make sure. can never be too safe!
