So I went up to the U for my triphasal ct scan. I had to drink not the usual 2 bottles of contrast but 3! It was more disgusting than I remember. I also have to have a IV medication during the last section of the exam. That, I dont think I will ever get used to. It is a horrible warm feeling you can feel run through your entire body and then ends up in your bladder all this happens within about 5 seconds  so you feel like you are going to
pee right on the table. ( I didnt thank goodness, but its always a fear!)
The tech did 3 scans altogether and then went to check with the radiologist before she un-hooked my from all my tubes. She came back about 5 minutes later and says to me" I have seen some pretty strange and horrible livers in my time and yours is pretty boring."


Well I told her thank you thats the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me!
I said "so you didnt find any lesions?" She said" I cant say if i did or didnt you have to wait for you Dr but its pretty boring to me!"
I dont know what this medical community is trying to do to my stress levels but enough is enough people. Give me some kind of straight answer here. Either its bad and I need a new one or I am going to live to be 99 and happy.
