Hi Ladies. Thank you so much for your replies. The PET scan crew (about
6 of them) said my reaction was fairly common and most folks do well with one dose of antidote and coffee. I forgot to mention that caffeine is also a mild antidote. Kinda like giving ADD patients drugs to rev up their system because that actually tires them and makes them able to focus.
Regardless, I think they should have made me wait in an area where I could be observed for a while.
My hubby offered to drive me, but I knew that I would be there for hours and didn't see the point. Besides, hubby and I were having a spat in which I basically said that if I could do x (which he said I should be able to do) then I could take myself for the tests. This resulted in him not coming to the ER except to pick me up and take me home. Obviously I'm still venting. He is usually the best caregiver anyone could ask for, but for the first time in many years we butted horns and wouldn't budge.
Thanks for the ride offer Lynnwood. I may take you up on it Sweetie. Laura the hugs are much appreciated and Joy I have follow-ups with my pulmonologist and cardiologist. I hate being SOB. Love, Butterflake
