I had exactly the same experience as you Mooney-the sensation I had wet myself was quite realistic indeed! However, they had warned me about this in advance thankfully. Otherwise, I'd have been mortified! LOL
Thanks for that. I was hoping it'll just be water ....I've learned some scans need a chalky yukky litre but I'll hold on to water. Funny what we get anxious about, isn't it? Trust your results have proved okay, love Cherry X
Thanks - the drinking water bit was really what I needed to know! Even if I'm a bizarre exception (apparently there can be a barium chalky yukky liquid for some), I'll hold onto that so I won't feel so anxious now. Hoping your results were fine, love Cherry X
I had a ct scan last year as a precaution. The liquid part is just water. You have to drink a glass of water every 10 mins, for an hour. So be prepared to sit there for a while! Not sure what the contrast bit means though, but I'm sure someone on here will know x
Hi, I;m not sure where to post this query but maybe someone can enlighten me a bit on what this scan entails? I had my breast cancer, mastectomy and radiotherapy over 4 years ago now and apart from anastrozole twinges am enjoying a happy healthy life.However, at under 7 stone I mentioned to my GP that I was now half a stone lighter than I used to be (and my missing boob would only have weighed a couple of ounces!)
All blood tests proved normal but she has nnevertheless referred me for a CT thorax and abdomen scan which will be on 26th January (next week). Having enjoyed four years of feeling it's all behind me, which it most likely still is, I find myself nervous about this scan, especially the bit that says I will have to drink a litre of liquid before the scan. What liquid? Water I don't mind, but yukky stuff fills me with dread. And scan with contrast - what's a 'contrast'??
Any shared experiences or info most welcome - thanks! love Cherry X
