For a CT Scan, they give you a drink, make you wait for a bit, get you to change into a gown, more waiting - then you go into the room where its done.
They put a cannula in your arm and put some more stuff in you. By now people don't want to spend much time in the same room as you. Because you're radioactive. I think.
Then the cannula comes out, you lie down on the bed and it slowly moves through a big white ring. You have to hold your breath at strategic points, the instructions are called out to you by a person in another room.
Just when you're starting to get really bored and a bit uncomfortable and wanting to fidget its done.
The images were ready right away, Dave and I took them home with us. We had a really good look at them. A couple of times we even got them the right way up. We had no idea what we were looking at.
That was a Thursday. We were not seeing the surgeon to discuss the results until the following Tuesday.
It felt like a very long time.
Here's me in the fabulous gown before the scan started.
