Defecating Proctogram.

Well, I had the MRI proctogram yesterday, and it wasnt as bad as I was expecting. The 2 Nurses were very friendly, and explained everything that was going to happen. I had the gel inserted, and got onto the couch, they positioned me correctly, then started to move the couch into the scanner, I went in feet first, and they stopped it at shoulder level. Then, they said they were going to move it further into the scanner, only another inch. kept on going head was right inside, ...then I totally lost it and was screaming hysterically, trying to get out, but not being able to move, etc. The Nurses immediately reversed the couch out from the scanner, and I was sobbing, and hyperventilating. They were so apologetic, saying that the couch hadn`t `coupled` up correctly, therefore, it kept going into the scanner. After 10 minutes, I was composed enough to give it another go. Which we did. I `performed` after much straining, (very hard to empty your bowel when laying down!!) So, just to see my Consultant on March 23rd for the results.
Would just like to say a BIG Thankyou to everyone for your comments, etc.
