Scanxiety to Happy 😊
However hard I try to be positive (and I do view the scans as a good thing/diagnostic tool) the anxiety catches up; I was doing well, despite a few moments in the scanner where I REALLY had to focus on breathing, until I had a reaction to the contrast. Fortunately it only caused hives, a very warm rash and sneezing but it threw me, and my poor OH who was called in from the waiting room (they didn’t tell him what was wrong!)
So at 2am I was swilling down the antihistamine and at 3.30 I am waiting to be able to sleep 😳 🤧
CT scan next week, but no contrast for that one because of iodine allergy.
Fingers crossed ay!🤞
