I had my MRI scan yesterday but I probably won’t get the results for a while though. It took about thirty minutes and apart from it being a little close in the machine, I found it wasn’t that bad. A friend of mine has had a few and she advised me on what to expect. The nurses/technicians gave me ear plugs and headphone which they could talk to me through as well as play music. There were no canulas this time and the pineapple juice was just pineapple juice (something to do with the magnet). Although I don’t usually get claustrophobic, I found it was easier to just lay with my eyes closed and listening to the machine around me. They gave me a panic button just in case but I found I didn’t need it once the scan started.
