    I have been to the hospital today for X Ray's - I have Rheumatoid Arthritis but after 2 years of steroids I don't seem to be getting any better - so my GP sent me to see a Consultant Rhuematologist and he suspect's that I may have 'Lupus' so I have had to have variuos blood, urine test's, scans and now X rays in the last month.....

    OK, fair enough I was more than willing to do this because I want to know what is going on with me, so today thinking at last all my test's were over I went for my Xray's and I had 12 Xrays's in one session!!!!!

    3 on each hip, 2 knee, 2 kneecap, 1 chest and 1 lumber region.......I was in the procedure room for over an hour, and when I was finished I 'hummed and glowed green'

    Oh well, it had to be done, so let's hope they decide what's wrong with me now....

    I am just going to read the threads and catch up on the news now, so see you all again in a mo.....

    Goodness! Sounds a bit of an ordeal. Hope you are given some answers soon.

    Can't help but think it would be quite cool to glow green, at least you would get a seat on the bus i imagine!

    I hope they gave you a nice j-cloth nightie to cover your dignity! Good job we haven't got a geiger counter, you'd be off the scale!:eek: Seriously tho, I hope this helps them decide what they can do to get you better.

    Thank you Judi, I hope so too, I make light of it, but it is a constant worry in the back of my mind....



    I did have a very fashionable hospital gown, but they X rayed so many area's of my body and in so many positions, that it was off more than it was on I'm afraid, LOL.....they even asked me if I was pregnant 'I should be so lucky'!!! I have a 14 month old grandson - so my child bearing days are long over, thank goodness, LOL.....
