Glad that it all went well Karen. It sounds a lot worse than it actually is. The "have I wee'd myself?" feeling is a bit weird though! Perhaps I should've mentioned it to you yesterday. But didn't want to alarm you. X x

Re: has anyone had a ct angiogram on the abdomen?

Hi Karen,

I had a CT angiogram and abdominal scan last December. I'm waiting for an elective DIEP flap double mastectomy and my plastic surgeon asked I have one so that he could have a detail of where my major blood vessels are for easy access during surgery. All went well and it was over with in 5 mins. The nurse injected a tracer into my arm and then I was passed through the scanner. It's very open and I didn't feel claustrophobic at all. It did feel a little like chemo when administered, but that only lasted seconds, although I did have a bit of a headache and was tired for the rest of the day. Hope that's of some help and all the best for tomorrow x x
