Waiting for mri results

15 May 2021 12:53

Hi I had an mri scan 2 weeks ago and have been really anxious about the results (tonsil lump)

I rang the secretary yesterday to be told the scan is back and the first available appointment she can give me is in 3 weeks time..

Initially I thought this sounded like good news as they wern't rushing me back but on overthinking it I'm now wondering has the scan even been looked at yet or is it just back ready to be looked at?

Will someone have read it before it went back to my consultant and flagged up anything sinister..

Any thoughts.

Thank you

I'm in the same situation . 
I had a Ct scan 8 days ago and the secretary told me yesterday that it's ready to be reviewed and doesn't know when they will ring me . 
This was an urgent scan too . 
it's a horrible situation isn't it ? 
I really feel and understand your anxiety .

Hi Pvfc4eva and Kodi,

I just want to reassure you that your consultant always holds a Multidisciplinary Team Meeting (MDT) to discuss the findings of any scans with colleagues, before getting back to you. This allows the team to decide whether or not all is good or, what surgery or treatment is planned if needed.

Kind regards,

Hi Kodi,

I hope that you hear soon. It usually takes 1-2 weeks to get results back, but this can vary throughout the country.

Please keep in touch and let us know how you get on. We are always here for you.

Kind regards,

Thankyou so much .

im struggling because I'm having to act normal infront of my daughter with additional needs .

ive been shielding her since March 20 . 
I don't want to put anxiety into my husband and I  don't want to worry my mum who's 90 caring for my 95 year old dad . 
you need your mum at these times don't you ? 
just hoping they've got it wrong . 
I've been reading late onset asthma ? 
but it doesn't say you struggle breathing all the time or chest pain . 
I'm stopping googling now and just waiting .

Hi Kodi,

It sounds as if you have an awful lot on your plate.. Not having anyone to talk to about this really heightens your anxiety. Having your mum to lean on is always a help, but I can understand why you don't want to burden her with this, when she is caring for your dad.

Please try to steer clear of 'Dr Google'. Much of the information here is out of date, poorly researched, inaccurate or aimed at the spectacular. You don't yet know what, if anything, is up with you, so you will only succeed in scaring yourself rigid and, for no useful purpose. Just remember that 'it's not cancer until you're told that it's cancer.'

I do so hope that they've got it wrong.

Don't forget to let us know when you hear something.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hi Kodi,

I'm sure that this is not the news that you wanted to hear, but this probably explains why you are feeling as you do. There are a number of different problems that can affect the liver and not all are cancerous. Part of my liver has fibrosed, as a result of the medication I've been taking for my breast cancer. I have a Fibroscan every year to see that it's not getting any worse.

Your care team or even your GP, can prescribe a cream or tablets to stop the itch and you can get medication to stop the sick feeling. Don't be afraid to ask for these.

You will naturally be worried and I only wish that I could give you reassurance that everything will be alright. Sadly, I don't have a crystal ball. It's good news that you will be getting your MRI soon and, hopefully this will give you a better idea of what the problem is. Don't forget that we are all here for you in the meantime.

You are one strong lady to be able to keep this from your family at the moment and you will get through this.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Thankyou . 
ive been prescribed cream and double strength lanzaroprazole for 2 months and then normal does . 
She said they're not hundred percent sure yet but I had an abdo scan before a gall bladder op a year ago last  January and it's all changed since then , hence the urgent mri . 
It's not cysts she said . 
She was lovely with me on the phone .

Hi Kodi,

I'm glad to hear that you have had some medication presribed to help you out. Have you got a date for your MRI yet?

If cysts have been ruled out, here's hoping that it's still less serious than you're expecting. We all seem to expect the worst at this stage, but fortunately, this doesn't always happen.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx
