I have come to a decision about the Cat Scan that is scheduled for this coming Friday (7/6) and that is if they don't give me at least a 'twilight' sedation I will not take the test. Yes I know I need the test. I called the imaging center this morning & they said they offered sedation only on MRI's but then I asked about 'twilight', they said they would 'get back with me & let me know' but I have not heard back from them. So I called my Dr.'s & left a voice mail message regarding my severe claustrophobia and that I can't take the test without at least light sedation and for the Dr. to order it for the test. I have not heard back from her office. If they do not comply with me, I will stand my ground & refuse the test even though I know I need it. I took it once before and it was not a pretty scene. I have been in such a high state of anxiety since the imaging center called me last Friday just to schedule the appt! My stomach is tied up in knots! This is all I can think about, it is consuming me making me physically ill having to hurry and run to the bathroom. These people need to take me seriously. I'm not the only person in this world with claustrophobia, surely there's got to be a way for them to accommodate me so we can get this test done without me going crazy in the process?
