Hi. Last Thursday I had a lumbar spine study done in an "open" MRI - it doesn't feel very open to me - I have claustrophobia issues, so I spent the whole time breathing deeply with my eyes shut trying not to move! Thankfully I could listen to music and shut my eyes while it was happening. They put a pillow under my legs to help, but by the end of the 45 minute MRI, my right outer thigh was numb and hot and painful and my lower back is just not OK. Since the MRI, my outer thigh has gotten worse. Has anyone gone through this? How long does it take to hear back from the doctor? I had to give the CD-ROM of the images to my doctor who will give it to radiology for their evaluation. I just want to know what is wrong with me and what I can do to make it better. Pain meds don't do anything. I can't lie down flat or stand up straight for long periods of time without my leg hurting and my lower back seizing up on me. Can anyone share their MRI experience?

I found out seven months ago that my husband of 22 years was going on craigslist and meeting up with women at their homes for happy endings and going to asian massage parlors. He is very sorry but I am not sure what to believe. Has anyone experienced this?Any advice??
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
