Follow up on bones and more
While in the waiting room for the second MRI on my shoulder, I learn there is more to this particular procedure. This time includes an arthrogram before the 45 minute MRI, where they shoot dye into the joint.
I get two novocaine shots. They inject the dye directly into my shoulder joint, and I am immediately flooded with such unbelievable burning pain I cry out “holy —-!” I immediately start crying because IT HURT!
The nurse says sorry, sorry, I didn’t give you enough, more is coming, it will feel better in just a moment.
I’m trying to keep cool, I say, “So now I understand why you need novocaine for this.”
The pain improved, but I had been startled and started shaking, and two images needed to be redone, lengthening my lovely, utterly snugly MRI.
I survived. I don’t have any witticisms to add except OUCH! And waaaahhhh! And, I want my mommy!
At least I’m being distracted by a good book, The Bone Season, by Samantha Shannon, which is a sci-fi based novel with nothing on broken bones except for clairvoyant a humans being beaten by their Rephaim keepers. Good book!
