    Jogging bottoms don't usually contain metal and a big baggy t-shirt. I hope it all goes well Chrissie and good luck,

    Dont worry too much about metal, I have been for a few MRI's and they normally get you to change into a gown beforehand.

    Good luck and take your own CD with you, the music they give to listen to is usuallt garbage.

    All done... Think it's a sad indictment of my life at the moment that that was the most relaxed i've felt all week!
    Ok it was noisy but I think the knowledge that I just had to lie there and listen to jazz for half an hour and there was nothing I could do about it was great.... Pity I'm now back to the stress of work :(

    Was gonna wish you luck but you are back already.
    Glad you eventually found something to wear. I purchased some pull on trousers and wear a vest (not string a nice one :lol: ) so that I dont wear a bra.
    I do have to take leg off though before entering, so trousers have to be quite wide :lol:
    Anyway..... glad it went ok.
    Hope you get the results pretty quick
    Take care

    Hello Chrissie,

    Like Juliepf I am too late to wish you "good luck" so I will say "well done" instead!

    Hope you don't have to wait too long for the results.

    Love Tilly xxx
