I know this may sound stupid....but I've been "thinking" about what next steps I want to take to find out "what" I've done to severely "re-irriate" one of my "T's"........
Since I had x-rays, bone scan, and CT scan, all within close proximity, then MRI...I get kinda worried about the "radioactive" tracings left in my body especially if you have to be "retested".
We have big time family history of breast cancer in the family, and of course the "thoracic spine" is the area they focus on for diagnostics. Normally when you have an x-ray, esp if you're a woman, they try to lead shield you with an apron to protect you from radiation exposure, they can't of course if they are imaging your t-spine.
I've been told be the dr who was treating me, that CT scan is actually worse in "dosage" of total radiation, than having several x-rays, and I'm not too keen on having radioactive isotopes injected into my body twice within two years!
Do any of these things cause anyone else 'barriers" in thinking about going for tests??
