I get to go for the CT scan today.  I have a small job to do this morning, followed by possibly covering part of a larger job this afternoon, so I hope it doesn't take too long.

Whatever is out of place is still out of place, so hopefully they'll find whatever it is and be able to fix it.

Thanks folks.  I'm really looking forward to having this smurf done and over with.  I won't have the results today, so that's a bit frustrating- it'll be a week or so before I get in to see either the ENT doctor or my regular doc, they'll prescribe some pills, if that doesn't do anything over a few weeks then they'll probably try something else, and possibly, eventually I may just get the surgery I was sure I needed almost a month ago when this first happened.

I understand them not wanting to start cutting without a good reason, but the fact is you can't cure a broken leg with pills.  At some point you have to get your hands dirty.

I'm sitting in the hospital now waiting for the scan.  Apparently its been a while since I've been here as they still had my old address.

They thought it was a good thing too.  I just hadn't realized it was so long ago either.

Anyways, I was at the hospital for about an hour all told, paid $2 in parking fees, and got injected with radioactive dye so they could scan me.  At least that's what they said it was for- in reality I think they just wanted to see if I'd start to vomit, which I very nearly did.  Boy did that stuff make me sick for a few minutes!  I thought I'd messed up the test as the two minutes or so that I felt awful was the two minutes or so I was in the machine.  They said it was fine though, so I guess I didn't do as badly as I'd thought.

I imagine I'll hear from my doctor early next week to get the results and we can go from there.

I've had this scan without the dye part, don't now how to call it. It felt like something between 2001: Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange. Horripilating if that's a word but useful.

Hope they find it and it proves simple, easy to fix. Waiting for the results :mail:

Well the sad fact is that I've learned to live with it, and it's one more pain I have, so if they can't figure it out, crap happens.

Make sure you drink a shed load of water today Grant.... flush that nasty stuff out of your system quick smart!

I had an angiogram years ago and remember the feeling of the dye bring flushed from my heart outwards. Utterly bizarre feeling, and I could see the x-ray monitor above me showing the tube moving from my arm to my heart too... that was freaky! :ahhh

The most fun part was when the dye circulated further afield it spread a weird heat with it which makes you think you have wet yourself amongst other things :rofl:

I was too busy keeping from being a vomit fountain to have too much fun with it. 

I'd like to keep the radioactive dye in my bloodstream for a while.  I want to see if I develop super powers...

Somewhere between working in the empty apartment, building a cart for my hardtop and putting on the soft top I managed to really aggravate whatever is wrong with my neck.

Since I still haven't gotten the results from the CAT scan yet I'm not terribly amused. I'm giving serous thought to visiting the hospital this evening to see if perhaps we can do another scan.
