my scan will be on tuesday at 12:30, results will come on wednesday afternoon. i got my instructions today on the scan. anytime you have instructions like "do not eat for 12 hours before the test, do not exercise for 48 hours before the test, do not bring children or pregnant women with you due to radioactive material, avoid prolonged exposure to childern or pregnant women for 10 hours after the scan, dress warm to mimimize muscle uptake in the shoulders, expect to be in imaging for 3.5 hours, etc." you know you are in for a long haul. bonus will be getting to taste saline when they put it into my iv before they inject the liquid. sigh.
