Oy. This one was rough.
Good news, though, this test is really only rough if you actually have the condition. Should a healthy person take this test, it’d most likely be pretty mundane.
Unfortunately, unlike the CT scan, I don’t really have any tips. I just thought I’d give you a run down of what the test was like, sans medical talk, so you can know what to expect going in.
The only prep instructions they’ll give you are to fast for six hours before (that includes stopping J-Tube feeds, too, apparently) and to make sure you have a ride home, because you will feel a bit wonky afterwards.
The first part is your basic outpatient prep stuff. Here’s your hospital gown that is designed for a 300 lb man, have fun trying to cover yourself in this 30 degree room.
