I have 3 titantium screens & mesh in my scull & 2 of the screws are hurting. My NS – I thought jokingly – said that he would just take them out! Do u know how they can take screws from bones without major problems? Tks

Hello – I can really relate to your post. I am terrified – and as a 72 yr. old embarrassed to say that I am so scared of MRI's that I tend to avoid them – at my peril! BUT I acidently came across the tapping of my fingers during a CATscan to take my mind off my dislike of the noise. It worked – the CAT scan is a little bit easier to do now with my solution but I now believe that doing anythi ng physical during a scary test works!!! Tks for letting us know your experience.

also try the professional organization that oversees neurosurgeons in Canada. Look it up on the internet & contact them. BTW – Over sveral yrs, I "interviewed" 3 NS before I settled on the one who removed my beign meningioma successfully. My family dr. was very helpful in setti g up these referrals so I could decide on which NS was goi g to have the "priviledge" of opening up my brain! BYW – I live in Ontario, Canada. Don't be pushed aroubd by the health care system. Fight for your health!!!
