Liver scan tomorrow

I don't mind scans but everytime I go to one I'm either puking up because of the dye or when I have a liver scan I get dead arms.

Do you think I can ask them tomorrow if I can have my arms side of my stomach rather than having it up on the air for one hour?

Is it an MRI? I think that's what they use to get a closer pic of liver when planning for surgery. If so, I don't think you need the drink (unless i'm wrong!) :x:

I had a liver MRI today and it was hands by my side and then strapped in! Hands always go numb so just have to remember to wiggle your fingers @Afraidboy

I have really bad shoulders but all I've been offered is an extra wedged cushion under my head so the hands can rest on it. It helps for a little while.

cant believe it

Good luck with your scan today hope it all goes well :x:

Definately worth asking. It might depend on what area of the liver they are looking at but I have always had my arms down by my side for my liver MRI. Good luck for tomorrow 🤞🤞🤞❤❤L

Thank you :x:
