Today I finally had my long awaited CT scan. The appointment had been made in November, 2002 but because of our efficient medical system I was only able to have it done today. Please note I am being facetious. I had a CT scan of my thorax and a CT scan of my abdomen.
After the scan I asked the technician how long it would take before the results were ready. I was told between 7 and 10 days. I was also told that the results would be sent to the doctor who ordered the CT scan even though he had changed clinics. Quite frankly, I don’t think I will ever get the results of the scans. We will just wait and see if my hunch is correct. I guess I can always pay $25.00 and have the hospital send a copy of the results directly to me.
Our daughter was able to leave the hospital today on a weekend pass. We picked her up after my CT scan, took her out for dinner and then took her home.
