I had a datscan at addenbrokes on July 22nd
A injection of istopes first thing in the morning and then lots of waiting till the afternoon.
A little russian doctor did mine, i laid on a table with a strap round my neck too keep me still, he then posistioned a flat type scanner close too my face so it would pass closely around me, i remember a screw was loose insided it lol and it would clunk as the scanner moved around me, not too worry the doctor said in his foreign accent laughing.
The scan itself wasn't anything like a mri, it was silent apart from that loose item and lasted 20 mins or so just concentrated on my head, At the end of the scan the doctor said all done, i'd nearly nodded off alseep it had been a long day, the doctor said "if i was you i'd make a emergency appointment with my neuro" "you neuro will have the results by the end of tmrw"
A clue i spose?, but i waited almost 2 months for the result and confirmation of the PD, the doctor doing the scan was right, my neuro did have the results the next day, and my Gp had the results within the week, Up till then the neuro would send me a letter promptly of test results, but this time not in error he said.
So i was diagnosed october 1st, I could of really started treatment in August, if the Neuro and Gp Had bothered too tell me.
