thanks for the moral support. i know i have to go through the tests to get everything right. leaving for my 3rd surgery in 6 weeks in a few minuets. next week mon, wed, fri, mri`s . hope everything goes right. it is nice having someone to talk to that has been there. last year i never thought it would happen to me.
Take a big breath you have to go through this to get the information you need. It is not unusual for people to get panicky in the confined space of an MRI. Ask your doctor if they have an open MRI in your area and if it would work for you. If not explain that they make you claustrophobic and ask for a sedative many people do and ask for them.
Keep us informed we are here for you.
