CT Scan this Morning

As D and I were sitting sipping on our morning coffees, he picked up my Droid phone and checked the calendar events for today. Hey he goes, aren’t you supposed to be having a CT scan today? Whaaaat? … I just finished my second piece of dry toast. I grabbed my folded up appointment list and yup, there it was, clear as day and I should have been fasting.

Anyways, in a panic, I called the clinic and they were really nice about it. She said that the small amount I ate is ok and will have moved along enough in time for my scan. She also said that I wasn’t the first one to forget … that made me feel less of a dumb bunny.

John was getting PET scans every 3 months for a year. Now he's up to every 6 months.

why can't you eat before a CT scan?

Hi gillian, I got this answer off Google ...

"They may want to scan the abdomen and want the intestines to be free of all food and water so they can get a better look at the organs (including the kidneys) to make sure they are without masses, tumors, cysts, etc."
