Scans today

Postby thubler » Tue Jan 14, 2020 6:28 am

Today is the day for my yearly scans. Unfortunately my radiology department no longer allows you to drink the barium prior to coming in. Apparently too many people were messing up the directions?!? So I worked all night (12 hrs) and now have to sit in an office for an hour and a half then I can get scanned. Probably a good thing so I'm not thinking about it all day. Last years scans came back in two hours so I'm hoping that is the case this time. Praying for good results. I hope everyone is doing well. Take care. -Ted.
