I braved it and had an MRI on Wednesday. The radiology dept. said based on how long ago I had my surgery with the screws in my jaw and that they were titanium-I would be safe. I was still nervous so they put me in the “Open MRI”. Well, I was still put head first into a machine. I can admit, I psyched myself out and made myself cry. Having ear plugs and head phones put on you before your head is strapped down? Yeah, it’s nerve wracking.
So now, I sit and wonder. I haven’t heard anything since then and it would be nice to know. I was told Pain Medicine Clinic needed to see the films before they would see me.
I’ve been sore and stiff. I won’t even discuss the week before moving and moving weekend. It was painful. It was scary. And for a doctor to tell me my face had gone numb from a headache? Yeah, I don’t think so scooter.
