"Mri scan"

About: Bmi - The Alexandra Hospital

Im claustrophobic and i could have cried when I saw the mri machine but the member of staff who stood by me the whole time was so reasuring and didnt leave me for a minute. They talked me through the procedure. The doctor talked to me at regular intervals throughout the scan but knowing that lovely staff member was by my side at such a traumatic time for me was so reassuring.

I did cry and panic and attempt to change my mind but they were lovely and I dnt think I could have gone through with it without them there! Thankyou x
