Magnetic resonance imaging.
The neurologist has asked me to undertake an MRI. I can only hope that this can be done on the public system because I canot possibly afford this out of my own pocket.
My orthopaedic surgeon already wanted me to have this performed on the shoulder which had suffered calcification, so I'm trying to arrange for both affected body parts to be scanned on the same day.
The good news is that the neurologist knows my orthopaedic surgeon, and has stated that he might be able to arrange this on the public system. I can only hope and pray.
I'm meeting with the orthopaedic surgeon next Wednesday morning (the 24th September).
Sheesh! Human bodies are NOT easy to maintain, and they're certainly no fun to live in.
