Hi Tina - My very best wishes for you and a good outcome here, too. You know those enclosed MRI machines??? Well, I got some of my best sleep in those. Oh such fond memories... One day while I was in there having a bunch of images taken on my back just before surgery... my then husband asked how I was doing because the test took 45 minutes. The technician said, "I don't know... she's snoring away though... I'll ask her when she wakes up." Yeah, white noise... you gotta love it!"
Next time ask for one of the open machines, if they are available... they do help with that issue of claustrophobia... but I hope you don't have to repeat it either. Let us know how you are doing along the way, if you would like the support.
