I have my MRI tomorrow on my spine sacro joint and neck..its come from the rheumy I saw he was so thorough and I am hoping to get some answers, the ultrasound will be on my hands wrist and feet, he says my wrist's are swollen I am not so sure, but they are painful, I was suppose to have an op on my thumb but that has calmed down since the injections ..still not got the confidence to have this other THR but I will soon..you are all welcome and there will be a pub meal in it for you... :D I have had 2 MRIs and pushed the buzzer once...so we shall see... fun and games... :lol:
Love
Barbara

    Barbara, I shall be thinking of you very much and sending very positive vibes your way.

    I don't think I'm yet sufficiently recovered to cope with another pub lunch with this lot. You're a brave woman :wink:

    You can pop me in your pocket for both. Hope all goes well, I've had two MRIs so know what it's like, mind you the first time I nearly got the giggles, I had been told to try nit to swallow and if I did to swallow slowly(?) and that plus the image of what I must have looked like with my head and shoulders strapped down, (it was for my neck), nearly set me off!
    Will keep my fingers crossed, just off to GP myself tomorrow.
    Scampi and chips for me please

    Hi Barbara
    Like I said to you earlier.....I'll be there
    They are awful things....MRI's
    Try and stick it out otherwise you'll have to do it over again :shock:
    That's what I lay there telling myself :lol: Don't press that buzzer or you'll have to come back again.
    The thought of doing it over again made me stick it out {3 times I've had them}
    Love

    I'll be with you Barbara, I hope all goes well, I'm sure it will :D
    I'll also come to the pub afterwards, but my mum says I'm not allowed to sit next to Villier, as we always get into trouble when we're together :oops:

    I'll be tagging along :D That'll be me, interrogating the staff about whether the cheese on their jacket potatoes is definitely suitable for vegetarians and are they sure and would they just check please, & generally getting on their wicks. :D

    See you there. :)

    Mirrors :o You are sure this is an MRI scan, aren't you Barbara? It's not another of your B&Q jobs? Check the credentials of the operators and don't strip off for anyone :lol:
    but my mum says I'm not allowed to sit next to Villier, as we always get into trouble when we're together :oops:

    Numpty, I'd heard you get into trouble whoever you're with :wink:

    Diving in your pocket last minute! I love making an entrance!! Hope it goes o.k and the MRI might show something. As for Ultrasound If it's beginning of the week that's fine but if it's Thursday onwards will have to get a virtual aeroplane back from Crete!! Hope it goes ok next week as well.

    Pleased you managed to not press the buzzer. I've never been given one when I've had an MRI. After that your ultrasound will be a doddle. May x
