Waiting for scan results. Is this part of scanxiety?
So I am waiting to know the results of my recent scans. Is this part of scanxiety? Or is it results anxiety or post testing angst? Whatever one could call it I don’t like it! I wish I could know right away! The results of my own scans have to go through my doctors first! I realize that is how it’s done but it makes me more anxious. I don’t like having to wait. How does anyone else handle the waiting game? I have been trying to be relaxed about it. The underlying dread of “what if”! My arm still hurts from where I received the contrast for my MRI. I had a dream about being inside the “tube”. The clicking and clacking of machine the voice that told me to hold my breath and breathe. I wonder if I could get a gin and tonic to take the edge off. Then I was cold and hot at the same time! It was a bit like torture. The tube is like a coffin, confining and restricting. It was uncomfortable in the machine and then my nose started to itch and I couldn’t move my arms!
