On Going Knee Problems

MRI Scan

Well last Thursday night I had yet another MRI scan on my knee at the hospital.  I really hate MRI scans. I mean they don’t hurt or anything it is just the noise of the machine seems to really get inside my head, but they are soooo much better than when I had my first one about 25 years ago, then you wasn’t supplied with head phones or music.

I was allowed to take my own CD along to this scan, it was a difficult choice as I have a wide range in musical tastes, I wanted to take my Meatloaf Bat Out of Hell CD but for some reason it is not in its case hmmmm, but ended up taking The Eagles Greatest Hits Two, I hadn’t played this in such a long time, so it was like meeting old friends. I love Hotel California & Seven Bridges Road

I hope the two radiographers didn’t mind my out of tune singing, seriously I can’t hold a note, it is one of those things I’d love to do sing one song properly!.  But it made my time in the scanner easier.

The scan had to be done twice, my legs twitch on their own accord, I have no control over it, but it seems the second scan they behaved better, I had a bit of a wiggle around in between & think I got a bit comfier, though not comfy, that can’t be achieve when you are going into a big round, noisy machine, laying on a not too comfy thin plastic mattress, but I tried to relax more & not think about it as much, that seemed to do the trick.

I’m back at the hospital to get the results on Friday 13th June, hopefully it won’t be unlucky for me & I will finally get rid of some of the pain in my left knee.

I’ll keep you posted.
