MRI scan

I have my MRI scan today, apparently you have to make sure that all jewellery is removed, no metal zippers allowed because it is a magnetic scan, so I started to ponder about the glitter in my nail varnish, I had visions of my being stuck inside the scanner hanging in there by my fingernails.

So all that said, I’m going bare, no nail varnish and apparently no make- up, even mascara is banned, no underwired bra eeeek, I’m hoping that I have no glitter from card making attached anywhere on my body.

If you don’t here from me by 8pm tonight please send out the cavalry to come and free me.

I do have one more concern, the scan lasts 30 minutes during which time you are lay horizontal, due to my lack of good nights sleep it may be that I fall asleep during this, I guess laying on my back I could end up snoring like a gissy pig…. oh the shame of it. Chris is coming along for moral support and I can see him retiring to the car in shame.

Good luck Jak. it's so hard not to move a muscle for 30 minutes. I had an MRI recently too but was lucky enough to be able to take my own music to listen too. Now got to have another one on my head think they must be in search of my brain this time.

Lisa Somerville said...

Good Luck Jak! Hopefully it will be an open MRI and you'll have music to listen too!

Good luck Jak hope all goes well and if you snore what does that matter at least you'll get a good sleep....lol take care

PeeJay said...

Good luck Jak but, unless you're mega tired, you've no chance of falling asleep. MRI's are very, very noisy! Headphones and music is the way to go. They will probably have a choice but you can take your own - or you can in this area. I've sat with Mum in the past, when she had one because of her claustrophobia and I've had one on my hip but didn't have to go right through, although I kept eye shades on as I didn't want to know how close I had to be taken to being the full way in ....

Elizabeth said...

Hope they gave you a large amount of valium and did you take out your navel piercing jewels? Sometimes they are forgotten.. The pounding of the machine might just keep you awake, don't worry about snoring.

Lesley said...

Good luck Jak, we are all thinking or you and sending good vibes!!
Have a good sleep while you are there, if you nod off you obviously need it, ha ha.
I hope all goes well. Hugs Lesley x

Hi Jak,
Good luck. When I had mine, they put ear phones on me to listen to their music. Also I had to strip off and wear one of their gowns you know the ones - those that cover you at the front and have a slit right up the back. Lovely!!

chrissie h said...

Hope all goes well. you can catch up with the glitter afterwards nails and cardmaking

Jean said...

Hope all has gone well Jak, (I'm assuming the deed has been done), and that it helps your consultant to discover the remedy for your problems.

Good luck, darlin'. Hope you do fall asleep -- best to sleep during unpleasant procedures. Thinking about you.

Mad Mary said...

They are so noisy and you do get music to listen too but i think you will be so uncomfortable to be able to sleep. Hope it's gone well.

Hope it all well ok for you. I have heard they are noisy machines but I only go in the cat scan which is just a doughnut. I have cracked that one too as I go braless and elasticated waist skirt so no getting changed ;-)

Jan said...

Hope its all gone well Jak - the MRI is a very strange experience - and certainly not quiet, so I doubt they will hear your snoring over the noise anyway lol x

Susan said...

Marion Burch said...

Oh Jak, You made me laugh all through your message, I don't think you will get stuck in there even if you do have a little glitter, I do wish you all the luck and no one will hear even if you do snore.
Hugs from Texas

Jenz Bitz 'n' Bobs said...

Hope all went well for the MRI scan today Jak. xx

Jo Rice said...

Good luck Jak, but I can honestly say that you won't sleep as the Magnet in the M.R.I. Scanner is so loud....but at least no radiation is used...hope you don't have to wait to long for your results.... Hugs. X

Merry said...

Wishing you all the best Jak. Your post was definitely funny....I am stuck with this image of you hanging by your fingernails. :-)

Laurian said...

Hi Jak, hope the scan went ok, as you will know by now they're too noisy to sleep in! Having had 3 or 4 myself I remember all the concerns the first one I had - but well worth it because you do get results and appropriate treatment after a scan.
Hope you're feeling ok now and you get your results soon!

Hugs

Laurian

Renee said...

Hugs, Renee

Donna C. said...

Glitter in nail polish comes from fish scales, so you are safe! Good luck.

Always get a chuckle from your blog, & as others have said & I know it's really noisey. Wishing you well..

Zosia said...

Hope everything went well for you and you are snoring in your own bed!!!! When I was diagnosed with my cancer (it will be 4 years November 2012) because it went into my bones slightly I had to have all sorts of scans so I do appreciate what you mean. Lots of hugs and hope to hear from you soon.

KIRSTY'S CARD PLACE said...

Good Luck Jak
I will be thinking of you, I had to have one done last year because of a car accident left me with back problems. The noise of the machine will hide any snoring so go for it and have that well deserved nap
Hugs

It is 12.10 on Tuesday Jak. No sign of you sweetie. I hope you are not caught up anywhere. Also hope you didn't snore, I can associate with you on that one. Seriously I hope all went okay.

Amanda said...

Hope it all goes well today, had an MRI myself a few months ago and I did fall asleep found the whole thing a lot more relaxing than I expected. Hugs, Amanda x

Mary Roberson said...

I've had a total of 3 in my life and they are just so darn loud-but they do provide the results the Dr's need to help diagnose and treat us...Hope you get some answers soon. I had mine done 2 months ago-go back for results end of this month.
