    The prep is easy. The radio-active dye goes in, you wait about 45 minutes ( I fall asleep). The test takes about 35/40 minutes. Everything is going to be fine. Positive, calm thoughts

      Will give you stratagies that will work for most. I can do a CT wirh no problem. It is the wait time on a PET scan that trips me up.

    That was definitely the hardest part for me. The waiting killed me but thank God the worrying was for nothing and results were good. Try to stay positive I know it's hard.

    Think positive thoughts. It IS SCARY. you will be fine. I recommend asking your dr for Ativan for the test. Luckily the results are reported quickly. Usually within 24-48 hrs. Best wishes!

    Take some deep breaths! The results will be what they are going to be whether you fret yourself sick or not, so just hang in there and believe what ever the results come back as, you will be one step closer to an answer and can become in charge of a plan.
