Well, that was embarrassing....

I went in today for a Joint Arthrogram and CT scan on my bum shoulder.
Unfortunately, the cortisone shot that I got two weeks ago has given me little relief.

I was injected in the shoulder with dye and then sent in for the scan to see if there are any tears.
As I walked in, I remember thinking, this machine looks a lot like my radiation machine.

I was making small talk with the techs and soon they both started yelling, "Woah, woah, woah!"
I sat up on the table and just looked at them like a deer in the headlights.

The first tech starts laughing and says, "We're just doing a shoulder exam. You can keep your clothes on!"

Apparently, I am so used to taking my shirt off for radiation every morning that I walked in, whipped off my shirt and positioned myself on the table.

The techs looked a little embarrassed as I proceeded to get dressed so they could do their job.
It makes me giggle just thinking about the looks on their faces. Good times.

I should have results on Wednesday afternoon.
I had the techs make me a CD of the scan so I can try to self diagnose myself before the follow up appointment.
Hopefully, it's nothing. If it's something, hopefully it's easily fixed.

Take care, my friends!


  1. Hysterical! At least you did it in front of medical professionals and not at the grocery store :)

    1. Right? I think I'm losing what's left of my mind. I'm sure I was the talk of the water cooler yesterday. Ugh.
