I was receiving twice a year a total body MRI. More radiation than I was willing to endure. Laying on that hard table trying so hard to not move, (Oh God get me out of this!). I have arthritis in the base of my spine. By the time I got off that table, they had to give me a shot for the pain. I was unable to even stand up. The next time it came time for another one I rebelled. Now they only do them if necessary. If I should start to experience more severe pain in my spine and hip, then I will go in for another one. But for now, NO! The Vicodin takes care of it for me. As the patient, I have the right to refuse. And I do.

Thanks Addie, and I couldn't agree more.

I was just explaining to Steve what it would be like to have a testicle hanging through a hole on a table face down for a half hour without moving a muscle and a vice pressing on it several times before it's finally jabbed with several needles. Shoot, many men would never show up for the test.

Frankly with this physical contortion of a test, you would think the least they could do is design a table like a massage table with a padded hole for your face! That contraption is actually comfortable. My neck and shoulders still hurts after all these hours on that idiot table with your face to the side without moving for all that time.

Trust me, I'll never complain about an ordinary yearly mammogram again!

Sorry about that Kayelle! I had the same thing, too not any fun at all. I hope all comes out negative.
