I'm allergic to the contrast so I have the CT of my lungs and then wait til my turn to have the MRI of my abdomen. My doctor won't give me the results for a WEEK but the hospital will post the results about four days after and I used to have an oncologist friend in Australia read them for me. Now I've learned the most important thing is to look for the 'bottom line' which is sometimes at the top!
In almost 10 years I've had sooooooooooo many scans, then several years of PET scans until BC/BS refused more. Now I only have Medicare and they will limit the number of scans I can have.
Very few people are not worried about scans.
