Remember to consult with us on SE, at least, before throwing in the towel. In the meantime, do what the docs say.
Did you think about re-doing your snake setup for wheelchair access?

I found MRI's relaxing as well...

In reply to: ive had several

of course I also had a 10 mg valium to ease the involuntary spasms my back was experiencing Wink

I had a woman tell me that the only pain a man could experience that was akin to a woman having labor was a bad back. Of course I can't actually verify that but I know I spent 5 days in a row without sleep when I had the worst of it.

Hang in there Mark... this to will heal. Happy

I've had them...

In reply to: ive had several

But I never fell asleep in one. My neighbor across the street was so huge, they could'nt shut the lid on it. could not run the test. He went about 450 lbs I guess.

Good luck with your tests Mark. Hope it all goes well.

They have to do CAT Scans on me as......

In reply to: I've had them...

the filter I have in the vena cava is a metal one and would bounce all over my body:( I didn't even know what it was made of until a few years ago, Lucky I didn't get an MRI in that time!

Collapse -
I don't know what...

In reply to: They have to do CAT Scans on me as......

that is, but if its metal, I would let them know before running one. I don't know if this stent I got in me is metal or not. I tell them when going for Cat Scans & X-rays, but apparently does'nt matter.

HI George

In reply to: I don't know what...

I think the stents must be some kind of synthetic not metal. The filter I have is in the main artery and it is shaped like an umbrella to break up clots before they get to my lungs.

here is link to what it is:)

In reply to: HI George

Hmmm.... Interesting

In reply to: here is link to what it is:)

Thanks. I bookmarked that for future reference. Now I know what they were talking about when they found that clot in my lung and put me on coumadin. The clot is gone now and they did'nt do it. But, they have come up with another idea which involves placing umbrella type gagets in the upper portion of my lungs. Something brand new and funded by some foundation. Will know more about it Thurs. but I think I'm going to pass on it. Enough is enough. Too old for all this crap.

that surgery really isn't too bad. They didn't even put me out for it! Kind of like having a stent put in:) And maybe since 1974 when they put mine in they have even learned how to put them in the right way! LOL! My Doctor was amazed that mine works becuae of that! The surgeon talked about taking it out, but then decided it was offering some protection:)

I believe the inductive heating would be worse.

In reply to: They have to do CAT Scans on me as......

They're supposed to ask careful questions, and look at your med history.

BTW the reason for the banging is that a pulsed magnet is stronger during pulses than a steady one, other things being equal. (Other things being size and cost.)

Well if surgery can be avoided ...
