Mri’s Are So Loud

I am an advocate and a patient.

I believe that the body always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is listening and doing what your body needs.

I deal with several medical issues

Osteonecrosis Osteoarthritis

Spondylolisthesis Factor V

Hypothyroidism Hashimoto

I like to educate and raise awareness

Well it was time for me to get a new mri on rt knee with osteonecrosis in it to see where I stand . Has it remained the same , did it progress to a worse stage after all its been 4 years now.  I’m praying its the same or better.

So a few days ago I had to go to my ortho and get new X-rays and an Updated MRI so I can see if more PRP is an option for my knee.

I woke up at 5:30am, showered, got dressed and downed a cup of coffee after my 10 oz water. I drive to my appointment.

The young lady calls my name we walk back to the mri room explains to me that it will take 20-25 minutes. It was pretty noisy already and i wasn’t even in the mri  tube yet.

So I lock up my things and head back to the mri room. I get on the table , I’m handed the ball in case i need to reach her. I figure this noisy ass contraption is going to be a test for me. I am going to close my eyes ear plugs in and meditate, I feel myself wheeled in.  My eyes are still closed. The knocks  drumbeats begin. Bang, bang, ting, knock knock its so loud even ear plugs don’t help.  The endless tapping noise is  so frustrating, its like your heart beat goes with that knocking rhythm .   That noise, that noise is becoming unbearable. Bang bang Chirp Ting. I go back to focusing on my breath. Soon I am getting pulled out and the test is over.

Thank You Jesus!

I hate to wait. I just wish they could post it in the portal or a simple call vs making an appointment and waiting to go to that appointment etc…

But my appointment is in about a week … now I wait.

I am pretty proud of myself that I was able to meditate my way through that, usually I have so much anxiety and stress afterward it almost can ruin a day well not that day thanks to prayers and meditation
