    I have to be at the doc's office at 9. The nurse actually called me at home tonight, to remind me not to eat or drink or take any meds after 9 tonight. She told me it would take about 4 hours, to dress warmly, bring a pillow and a book, that I would have to lie quietly for the 4 hours. UGH! Suddenly my biggest concern was whether or not they would let me up to pee! LOL Kind of funny, at this point, I'm not worrying about test results, just whether they will let me get up to go to the bathroom!

    Could you tell us more about this test, and what it is supposed to rule in or out? Also, what type of doctor is ordering it? Thank you.

    I got a call from the nurse who was to do the test and she had just fallen down the stairs and was having neck, back and leg pain, said she could not walk. I ended up going on in to work. She has tentatively rescheduled me for 2 weeks from today.
