@awakemysoul: As another Canadian, I know you feel concerned. But I mean you should be happy that they are bumping him up if they think something could be wrong. Hopefully it was just a poor MRI the first time around and that they just needed a second one. Techs make mistakes. 

 

I wish you both all the best and keep us upto date.

I hope everything works out!  Sending thoughts and hugs your way.  The good news is that you’re closer to getting answers the sooner he gets test.  Good luck!

My Fiance has had migraines all his life as well and in his 20s, he had MRIs that showed he has a benign tumor in his brain. Doctors do not want to remove it because it’s in an area that could affect his speech if something went wrong, so they just keep an eye on it and it has remained benign all this time. Just a little encouragement that even if there IS something there, it’s not always necessarily bad! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.

aw, i know how hard that is when you’re really worried but you can’t act worried because you don’t want to freak him out or make HIM worry! When stuff like this comes up for us I just try to remember that even when SOMETHING is wrong it is rarely a very serious thing. Most people in my family have had troubling medical issues that are scary as you’re going through the diagnosis process but ultimately turn out to be rather simple in treatment. It sucks to have something wrong (if there even is something wrong) but just keep in mind that something wrong does not necessarily mean it is some horrible life-altering thing.

@awakemysoul: ((hugs))  That’s very stressful for you both. I fell and injured my back, went to St Mikes, got examined and went home. They called me after I’d been home about 20 minutes and asked me to come back for a CT scan because they thought they saw a crack in my vertebrae. Same as you guys, there’s a HUGE wait for CT scans, I got one straight away. It’s a better safe than sorry type of thing I think. And it could be that since your Darling Husband got the ball rolling with the first scan so quickly, they booked the second one (probably for more clarification like you said) since the file is now open and fresh in their heads.

@bakerella:

I have to say, I’m so jealous of the Canadian health care right now, since I’m sure yalls MRIs didn’t cost you anything. Our daughter has to have one with and without dye on Friday and by the time we make up the cost to meet her deductible and then pay the percentage of the MRIs not covered by insurance, we’ll probably be $700-$800 out of pocket. OH and we STILL had to wait a month!

@ohheavenlyday: We pay for it through crazy income taxes and 13% tax whenever we buy just about everything 😉 But I agree, it’s worth the price to have it available to us and at our finger tips when we need it. I hope your daughter is feeling okay!

@awakemysoul: I know it’s so hard to not think the worst and it’s so easy for me to say not to worry, but I’m a firm believer in trying not to get too freaked out until the results are given. I could go online and google a few things that makes me think I would be dying tomorrow with all of the stuff out there…so try not to get too concerned that he got into an MRI quickly. Maybe it’s just what you said…a cancellation, and he was the first person able to respond to that cancellation. And the second MRI could just have been a tech that made a mistake the first time around.

Either way, I hope things work out for the two of you, and I’m praying for you guys!! Keep us updated when you hear anything!

It’s definitely scary when a possible health issue arises. Sometimes techs do make mistakes. My bf and I just went through a month of stress and worry when a botched x-ray showed a large spot on his lung. Luckily, our family doctor jumped in before a CT scan was done and had a series of x-rays done. Absolutely nothing on his lung at all.

My sister has an AVM (a mass, basically) in her brain. It’s non-operable and some treatment has been needed, but she is going to be just fine in time. I know when people think “brain” it’s immediately terrifying. I’ve never been more scared in my life than when I thought she had a brain tumour. MY thoughts are with you and your hubby, hoping for a clean MRI!

Im sorry you twoare so worried I hope everything turns out for the best!! Hopefully it was just because of the other appointment being a no go. If not tho at least they bumped him up the list so they can beigin to start making strides in whatever it may be. Good luck and dont get yourselves to stressed before knowing the results of the MRI’s.

We have been going through this for the last two months or so. My Brother-In-Law suddenly passed away back in December…prompting the whole family to go get checked out. Pretty much for the rest of his life he has to go get checkups every 6 months.

So yeah, I understand your fear, and then some.

All I can say is these things are out of our control. All we can do is do our best to combat them, knowing is a blessing vs not knowing. Because then we have the option to DO something about it however little.

What can YOU do? Just be supportive. You CAN show him you are worried. Because why wouldn’t you be? You love him. But most of all be positive, be his support and his shoulder.

Best of luck that nothing comes up.
