Um I laid there tried to follow directions.Seven minutes short of my time the tech says " How are you doing Ms. G___? I say ," I am in pain just like any other time" THe tech then tells me that the pictures are blurry and she will send those to the doctor in hopes that they can see what they need too.

    Poor you, it's not easy and people don't seem to understand, and it's usually the ones who should understand what you are going through who don't. You did very well, and it was nice your husband was there with you, that kind of thing makes a difference too.

    Take care

    Morning diagnosososalie; did they not offer you "iv sedation:???   I couldn't get through my 1st MRI, so have always insisted on some IV Valium or Hypnovel..............I think that after all this time of knowing how hard it is to have to "go into that tunnel", that the powers that be should know by now and "just administer it"...especially as you had your husband with you.............so sorry.................Bron
