Welcome to healing well! I've had a bone scan done of my hips down to my toes... my podiatrist ordered it 'cause they didn't know what was wrong with my feet, thought I might have a series of micro-fractures in them. So they did the bone scan to see. The white spots, like the technician said shows where there is more concentration of your blood. When you are injured or have broken bones, your body sends more blood to that area to try and fix the damage. That's why they inject you with the radiation before the bone scan. So that your blood has time to route it to the "problem" areas. When they see the bone scan, they basically can see where you are having problems. I guess to rule out the fact that people try and say they have pain when they truly don't. The bad thing with the bone scan is that it doesn't tell them if it is fracture or neuroma or inflammation...just that something is wrong in that spot. CaMama hit it spot on!
Erin - I got sick when I got the injection too... not too bad, but was nauseous and just felt crappy.... felt that way for a couple days... then all of the sudden, I was fine. When do you go in for yours? - Duck
