Back up to London this afternoon for a quick MRI to have a better look at my back.
But before that I would just like to say that so far, I have got away with no side effects from the Covid Vaccinations I had last Friday. Good news.
The drive to London was quick and non-eventful despite there being snow on the ground and road near home.
I had a late appointment and it turned out I was the last scan of the day so when I arrived, I was quickly processed and instructed to get changed into a hospital gown.
I sat for a few minutes in the empty corridor thinking about how quiet it was, just the faint whirring of a MRI machine behind closed doors. It was also slightly spooky as you expect hospitals to be full of people moving around.
After a few minutes I was called in to the scanning room and asked to lay on the bed, this was torture as lying on flat surfaces really hurts my back and so I asked for some padding to support my back and it felt a little better.
And then I was slid into the drum of the scanner, some instructions came over the headphones and then it started.
The noise never ceases to amaze me, it like being in a tumble drier full of spanners on a fast spin, and the noises change as the scanner does different things.
It lasted about 45 minutes and by that time I was just about ready to make a full confession 😉
I was slid back out of the machine and struggled to sit back up, but I made it and then off to get dressed and the journey hone.
And of course, the wait for the results!
