Well firstly, there is nothing to report, apart from I’ve had the scan! The rest of this post is just ramblings and details – but don’t look for the outcome as that’s not til Tuesday!
I arrived late. 15 minutes. Trying to get through Bournemouth on the hottest day of the year so far is not easy! Not a good start. But they didn’t seem to mind.
Had to drink a litre of water over a space of an hour. Even I could do that after 4 hours with none! I was worried they would make me drink gallons in 5 minutes or something silly.
Got called after 45 minutes instead of an hour (see, being late is a gooooood thing!) and to be honest, it zoomed. I had my laptop and phone so easy to keep amused. Note to self: do the same for future appointments.
As is normal we me, they couldn’t find a vein. Found one and then went in where there was a valve. I have no idea of the consequences other than it hurt more than a line should. Ho hum. I can do pain!
They put something in me that could give me a flush (I was warm anyway), a funny taste in mouth throat (it did) and a feeling that I was wee-ing even though I wasn’t (I’m not sure that’s quite how I’d describe it…maybe I was getting the flush in my ladybits, but it wasn’t a totallu unpleasant experience!!!)
A bit of breathing in and out and a machine whizzing back and forth over my body and it was all done.
A sausage roll from the garage never tasted so good after 6 hours without food. I was starving!!!
