Hi Jak,
happy to hear that you got things straightened out. Hope they can figure out what's wrong and do something to help you.
I just had another surgery 3 days ago on my left knee, so I'll probably be spending a lot of time online and will be glad to chat with you. Take it easy.

yeah they get you to fill out a form with questions about do you have various conditions, do you have tattoos, piercings, metal in your body etc....
they help you if you dont know some of the answers.

but even after i filled mine out i dont think anyone read it cos as i was about to go in the machine the lady said 'so no tattoos or metal in the body then?' and i said 'yes - ive a surgical screw in my knee and a tattoo!!' and she was like 'oh' - so i dont know if the form filling is just for the records!!!

but someone is watching over you the whole time anyway so if there was anything wrong they stop the machine.
They also give you a button to hold so that if you need them to stop the machine you can press it.

its easy!

it went pretty well. the staff was really nice and they gave me a locker to put my stuff in that couldnt go in the machine, they didnt give me any headphones to listen to music and they didnt give me a panic button. they did give me some ear plugs though. i really didnt like having the ceiling like an inch above my nose, but i got over it pretty quickly.


i will write yall when i hear my results. (which they said should be today or tmw.)

well done jak!!
its not so bad is it? besides the ceiling being on your nose :)
yeah they gave me ear plugs too - it helps block out the machine noises...

looking forward to hearing your results!!!

well done you - you took that in your stride!
