Oh Wend, poor you, having to lie still all that while. I would have been in agony with the fm if it had been me and would have had to be lifted off the thing, to hobble away like an old crone!



Andysmum Report 1 Apr 2014 16:01

Mine was only about 15 mins. 1½ hrs is a VERY long time - I wouldn't have liked to keep still that long. I don't remember it being noisy, and nobody offered me music. :-( :-(


Annx Report 31 Mar 2014 23:23

Don't know about you, but even though I knew it would be noisy, when it started up it was so loud I thought it might have gone wrong!! I was expecting to smell burning wires and the magnets to come flying out!! :-0 One and a half hours is a VERY long poor thing! Good job it's done now. :-)


Mauatthecoast Report 31 Mar 2014 23:18

ah and you would have becoming dreamy too Wend?... lots of guitars with Elvis....I had to control myself from giggling :-D


Wend Report 31 Mar 2014 22:41

No, Island, I was trying not to breathe too hard as well, having read up about it. I didn't have the dye, but I have had in the past and it was quite a pleasant feeling - made me feel warm all over ;-) :-D

As for the music Mau, I asked for Classical and just when Beethoven's 'Fur Elise' started and I got a bit teary thinking about my daughter playing it on the piano, the ruddy pneumatic drills started and that was it :-0 :-P :-D


Island Report 31 Mar 2014 22:31

An hour and half Wend? :-S Were you fidgeting?

I was only about 15 mins - and got the dye! Oooerr :-0

No Elvis :-(


Mauatthecoast Report 31 Mar 2014 22:26

Glad everything went well for you Wend. I've had MRI scan too, was a little scared because I felt it would be a bit claustrophobic.

Before I lay down male doc. asked me if I'd like music, I said' oh yes please'.....he played a great selection of Elvis numbers, good job I love him :-D :-D


Wend Report 31 Mar 2014 22:05

Telling me Ann - one and a half hours of lying still did it for me. Towards the end, all I wanted to do was jump up and do the 'can-can', but I couldn't :-(


Annx Report 31 Mar 2014 21:44

But aren't those beds you lie on uncomfortable, especially as you have to lie still and for so long? :-| I had a job to get up afterwards!! lol.


MR_MAGOO Report 31 Mar 2014 18:46

Glad all went well Wend....... <3


Wend Report 31 Mar 2014 17:06

I thought there were several pneumatic drills actually inside the machine Prickles. :-0

Ah, so that's why I was told to keep my underpants on, was it? :-0 :-D


Island Report 31 Mar 2014 16:56

I've sussed it now Prickolls. Everybody else thinks they really did water the table so they're keeping quiet. :-D :-D


PricklyHolly Report 31 Mar 2014 16:46

Nobody warned me about the noise Wend.

I thought someone in the next room had set off a pneumatic drill.

Unlike Dottie........I didn't wee myself though!!!



Andysmum Report 31 Mar 2014 15:15

I had my head done about a year ago. Afterwards they said there was nothing there except what they would expect for someone my age!!

Not quite sure how to take that!!

I only had to undress the top half and I think my wedding ring had a piece of plaster put over it.


Island Report 31 Mar 2014 15:03

So I did actually pee myself then? :-S


JemimaFawr Report 31 Mar 2014 14:44

Well done Wend :-) :-) :-)

You are now officially a fully fledged member of the MRI Club! :-D :-D :-D

So who's in the gang? :-D :-D :-D


Merlin Report 31 Mar 2014 14:24

Hope all goes well Wendxx. (Had to look twice because I read it as MFI Scan)


Wend Report 31 Mar 2014 14:12

Aww, OFITG, not even a little touch of rouge :-D <3 :-D <3


OneFootInTheGrave Report 31 Mar 2014 14:07

Wend - pleased everything went smoothly with your scan <3

And by the way this old gut has done many things in his life, but one thing I can assure you that I have not done is - wear make-up :-D


Island Report 31 Mar 2014 14:03

So you didn't get that warm sensation Wend? :-S :-D
