weedrea Posted January 10, 2016 Share Posted January 10, 2016 Hopefully my experience will give you a laugh..... I was treated in Glasgow, which is 250 miles and a 2 1/2 hr ferry ride from where I live. To make things easier I asked if I could have my first scan in Inverness as I work from home but my main office is there so I can always tie a visit in with work. So I went last week for my scan. The guy who came to talk me through what was going to happen (radiologist I presume..but he looked far too young to work the big machine lol). After going through all the usual questions he said "So Glasgow haven't given us much detail about your condition. Did they tell you what they did?" To which I answered, "coiled one aneurysm and left the other for the moment". Then he said, "So did they tell you what type of coil they used? Not all of them are safe for MRI scans. Did they tell you it's definitely MRI safe?" At this point I don't know whether to laugh or cry! I said that I'd had an MRI before they released me following my op and...well if they're sending me for an MRI can we not presume it's safe?! He said he'd consult my notes just to make sure!! Then nothing else was said but he did causally say when I was being put in the MRI...."now remember, if you feel anything odd in your head or anything hot, please just buzz us immediately." As it was, it all went fine and he said he did an extra, different scan too just in case they wanted to see that too. Hopefully it's not an ominous sign and it was just him doing extra because I was there ....I'll just need to wait 2 or 3 weeks now to hear what they say.
