Plenty of Scan, Not Enough Cats

by Tom on June 17th, 2009

Today I went in for my originally scheduled CAT scan; this time they scanned above and below where I was scanned a week ago. They want to reduce the amount of extra radiation that hits my body.

I had to drink two big canisters of a “berry” flavored Barium smoothie as a contrast agent.

Also, using paper tape for immobilizing the contrast IV was awesome. Much better than the plastic that was used last week; having that pulled off was in the realm of the biopsy pain, but more sustained.

I’m thankful for all scheduled medical stuff being done for the week. I need a vacation.
