so i had to have what adds up to 4 MRI's on monday. they did T-spine and then C-spine and then they did them with contrast (dye). half way thru the mri specialist comes to give me the contrast and says i hope your not married, so i asked why and he said that my elbows and my legs where jerking and bouncing all over the place and if i was married i would be sleeping on the couch so i chuckeled and said SLEEP ya right. "Whats that". like i said that was the 1st half of the appointment. when it was finally over he said, "SORRY" i said what for, he said that i had to lay there that long and that he would let my doc know how unpleasant it was to watch a young guy twitch for 2hrs. very nervous about the results get them on friday and if my syringomyelia has got any larger then i have to get a shunt put in. with that said if i say NO to the surgery then i will be paraylized eventually and if i have the surgery they cut your spinal cord to operate and there is a chance or being paraylized.
