In April of this year, I did a very open blog post about my health entitled ‘Elephant in the Room’…..
Here is the link for anyone who wants to read it again (or for the first time)!
Towards the end of that post, I made reference to the fact that I would be having another MRI scan in September to determine whether or not the needle I’ve been sticking into my leg for the past two years and nine months is actually working or not. If the medication isn’t working, I will need to look at an alternative treatment. But…. We’ll cross that bridge if we come to it.
The MRI scan is today.
3:00pm. Beaumont Hospital. Which means probably around 4:30pm.
The MRI scan results will be available in a few weeks when I meet with my MS team. The MRI will show white spots on my brain and spine (I already have a number of these). However, the doctors will be looking for new white spots and if none have appeared on my brain or spine since my last scan in January – that’s GOOD news. I feel good so I’m hoping that’s the case!
I absolutely hate the MRI scanner. My head is strapped into a contraption so that I don’t move and what is actually only around 30 minutes feels like 4 hours but it has to be done and that’s just that.
I’ll try and get a sneaky picture of my wonderful headgear or perhaps the ever-flattering hospital gown for you all. If there was ever a good time to subscribe to this blog…… Now is not it 😉
Wish me luck!
