well I have never considered my self to be claustrophobic(how ever it is spelled) but I must confess I nearly freaked out... after the first 4 or 5 seconds I knew this was gonna be a trip and kept reminding myself of all the babies /children who go through this type of tests and figured if they can do it I can too...
I did have to ask to be let out when she was putting the dye in my veins, but i still could not move my head. BUT in the end I survived it... the nurse heard my bones popping when I stood up after an hour and 15 minutes in the machine and kind of laughed told her they were thanking her for letting me out!
I have a disc with the pictures of my brain, but am not sure how to save them from the disc to my computer. But in my educated mind the best i can GUESS at this point is that I did not see a tumor of any kind in my head... however I also don't have any visible ventricles on the right and very little on the left and my left eye orbit is much smaller in one view because of the swelling of my brain pushing into it.
I have lost just about all of the vision in my left eye and if it continue like it has in the last 3 weeks I figure I will be completely sightless in my left eye very soon. I am hoping/ praying that If this is pseudotumorcerebri that once they get the pressure and fluids in my brain regulated that my sight will return.
The nurse said that the dr should have my MRI results on monday and if my vision gets worse to call him on monday. Anyway thats where things are today :)
God bless you and keep you until we meet again ! Love n hugs and thank you for the prayers :)
