Hey Pamela,
How was your MRI?  I had mine 2 weeks ago and still don't know anything.  I had to see a NP instead of my regular Dr. due to some family issues (had to go early) and she wouldn't even make a copy of the findings for me.... So, I guess I have to wait for another month..Yippee!!!
 
Let me know how it went...

We are all in the same boat...unfortunatley it seems like it's sinking...

You have to wait a whole month, Me?! That is just ridiculous! Could you at least call your doctor & have him report the findings over the phone? I don't think I could wait that long! The anticipation would kill me! It's bad enough having to wait a week or two to find out the results!

Hope your MRI went smoothly, Pamela & you are home resting!

Pamela,

How did the MRI go??  Hope everything went well!!

Me, I had an MRI 2 weeks ago and had the results the next day?  Call your Dr., thats just wrong!  They can definitely get a phone report if they haven't rec'd the official report.  Very strange though because the MRI facility I went to actually told me the report would be available at 10 the next morning and it was!

XXOO

Thank you for the good wishes. Really. It perked me up as I had a very bad day.
I was at MRI for 4 hours. I had Versed and some sort of sedation. It didn't near put
me out .. I moved too much. Shoulders are difficult to MRI.

I was in all the pain because they kept me up for four hours doing paper work. Being up
like that hurt.

I'll have general anesthesia when I have 5 MRI's.

Doctor wants me to call first thing tomorrow morning. I got the message on my answering
machine. I'm beyond nervous about this thing.

I asked for classic rock. The kid only had the Beach Boys. Oh, that's fine, he said. I
got reallllllly tired of the scratchy Beach Boys and asked what else they might have. alt
rock was the answer. I love alt rock. Problem with that was he played all male voices
rough voices. made one want to go out and ride a motor cycle or something. He got
cranky with me cuz I moved.

Talk to y'all later.

I am sorry, but if that kid thinks that the Beach Boys equal classic rock, his parents must have listened to the wrong types of music. That's like saying Phil Collins is heavy metal.

Hey Pam!
Sorry it didn't go so good for you. I hate when the techs get cranky, like they are the one's stuck in the tube! Does this mean they will knock you out w/ G.A. for all the MRI's at one time? That would be great if they could! I'll be sticking close by in your corner cause, No work for Pete for a while!
Hugz!!!

oddibemcd, you got that right. It's strange cuz I always thought I liked the Beach Boys ~
Oh, nooooo way. Play that and I'll cover my ears.

Well, Pete, here you are. When you are up and about tell us about it in length. You
confirmed my fear about Methadone. I'm going to start cutting down starting tomorrow
because the way things are feeling, the pump ain't gonna work for me. Pills don't
work for me.I think I'm on my way to the neurosurgeon (or did you have an orthopedic
surgeon.)

I've been hiding my pain for a long, long time. I'm not sure I can do it anymore.
I'll see you on your new thread.

Pamela
