Re: the MRI scan, you don't get a PANIC button for no reason !! I have just tried to have the scan, but I couldn't go through with it ! My nurse said \" not to worry as over half the patients today could not go ahead either ! \"
The tunnel looked big enough not to be claustophobic, so I lay on the bed, closed my eyes & listened to Mamma Mia on my headphones. But what no one warned me about, was the fact that not only did the bed go into the tunnel, but the bed was also raised up as high as possible, so that I could not lift my hands up & the top of the tunnel was only a few inches from my nose !! It was like being in a toaster, with my hands at my side, but NO one had warned me that this was going to happen………………..
So I panicked & pressed the button to get out as soon as possible !
I hope this letter will help prepare patients for the MRI scan & it won’t be such a shock to them, as it was for me. :cry:
