KangaDaddy is having his MRI scan tomorrow

DH spoke to GP this morning and said YES we want to go ahead with it

So GP faxed the report off to the MRI scanning dept at WEST MIDDLESEX Hospital at lunchtime

This afternoon they ring up and say tomorrow @ 12.15pm

It is so quick we are rather blown away with the speed.

They are going to look at his lumber region and pelvis.

We get to bring the pictures home and a report is sent to GP.

So pictures will be interesting to have and for DS to see.

Just hope that we then will find out what it is causing all the pain.

It is made more complicated by the fact of one of our cats injuring her leg and needing to go to vets in the morning {she may have to have X -RAY as she may have broken it}

Excellent news for you and dh It's brill that they've got it all sorted so quickly isn't it? Hope everything comes back fine and that it's something really simple that's hurting him.

Not so good for the cat though!! Poor thing..... what's the saying about raining and pouring??

RTKangaMummy Thu 05-May-05 19:13:24

It is a scan thing when you lie on a bed and slide into a machine and it takes sliced pictures of you

RTKangaMummy Thu 05-May-05 19:15:47

pictures like these

Thanks yes it is Deffo brill just a bit of a shock at the speed

WigWamBam Thu 05-May-05 19:18:28

At least it'll all be done and dusted, and you'll know for sure. It's good news - deffo brill .

Sorry about the cat though; I hope she's OK.

RTKangaMummy Thu 05-May-05 19:20:17

Yes I know it never rains but it pours or something like that

Am hoping it will be something really simple that can be solved with oestopathy or physio or something

RTKangaMummy Thu 05-May-05 19:24:44

Thanks WWB

That is what we think at least we will know and then know what to do

Cat was attacked by fox this morning and ran up tree but then fell, her leg very painful and swollen has been to vet and had anti-biotics and pain killers but has to go again in morning

On Sunday we have the annual memorial service for DT1 in London.

RTKangaMummy Thu 05-May-05 19:26:19

The memorial service is organised by the hospital each year for babies who have died whenever that happened

WigWamBam Thu 05-May-05 19:27:12

I know it won't really help but I'll be thinking of you tomorrow and Sunday.

RTKangaMummy Thu 05-May-05 19:28:14

Thanks WWB

Yes it does mean alot

RTKangaMummy Thu 05-May-05 20:37:10

At least this time tomorrow we should know what it is

Hopefully anyway

coppertop Thu 05-May-05 20:38:05

Best of luck to you and Kangadaddy for tomorrow, RTKM. xxx

Fingers crossed also for KangaCat.

Milliways Thu 05-May-05 20:40:17

Thinking of you both.

If you get a chance, please post how long the scan took as I am having a pelvis MRI on 19th and a bit nervous.

Hope it all goes well, and that your cat is ok too!

RTKangaMummy Thu 05-May-05 20:46:59

Thanks CopperTop and Milliways

Thanks for support

Lumbar and pelvic is about an hour

so guess 30 mins

JoolsToo Thu 05-May-05 20:52:50

pleased that you are getting seen so quickly - good luck! (especially to Mr Kanga )
