Hi, I hope I'm not to late. I also had a PET scan and I have had MRIs. The PET is easier. It's not as long and the enclosure is less confining. I think the fear of more cancer is so scary. I hope all goes well.
I just read your reply and have to thank you too. I'm headed for an MRI and have huge anxiety attacks. Sometimes in the past I've actually done only 20 seconds inside that horrible thing before calling the nurse to get me out. I only wish the doctor had ordered a CAT scan, but guess there are insurance issues.
If you have any tips about lessening the anxiety, they would be so appreciated. And I agree, with the worry of having cancer (my MRI is for my back), but will have x-rays for a spot on my lungs... the anxiety gets worse.
Happy and Healthy New Year....
