MRI and pain

Today was MRI day. That and I finally ran out of my normal pain medication. I was taking vicoprofen (hydrocodone and ibuprofen) but Dr. Kao was concerned that it may be aggravating the bleeding, so he changed me to Norco (hydrocodone and acetominophen). I don't know what it is about me and my drug tolerance, but that stuff just doesn't seem to work as well which leads to no fun at all. Maybe heroin IS the key...

The MRI was interesting. They actually had Pandora piped into headphones that i was wearing so I had Volbeat radio playing for the couple of hours that I sat in the magnotube. The table that you have to sit on gets freakin' hot when you are in it for that long though! My ass was on fire! Plus, I had to do another contrast dye so that meant another IV.

Ah well, tomorrow all three doctors get together and discuss my case. Then I go see the surgeon for his take. Hopefully I can start treatment next week...
