Karen Posted September 3, 2006 Share Posted September 3, 2006 Well. tomorrow is the day when I'm in hospital for my MRA. Not looking forward to going into the MRI Scanner again. Is it something that anybody ever gets used to? This will be my 4th time and I still liken it to being stuffed into the inside of a toilet roll tube. I shall try to keep my eyes shut as I'm going in, but I bet that I will have to take a peak........wish they would blindfold me as well as putting in ear plugs! I'm not normally claustrophobic but find it hard to relax.......especially when they hand you the panic button and then walk out of the room. Oh well, watch this space! (May be I'm just a whimp!) They will be scanning for any new aneurysms and the possibility of a re-bleed from the coiling that I had carried out last year. Lots of mixed emotions tonight and finding it hard to sleep. I want them to find out what's been kicking off with my head again, but really hate the thought of another hospital stay. Beginning to wonder whether having the aneurysm clipped would have been a better option long term, even though the procedure is riskier. A bit fed up with it all though and too much time to think about it. Still, hopeful that they might give me some peace of mind either way. Just want some of my life back!! Will let you know how it goes! Love Karen x Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
