I am going to do it myself my mri is ready but the doctors are not availabl until september and I am going to get a copy of it and set it up on my two computers and see if I can see any changes from the last one that I still have.

Any one want to be around for moral support when I do this.

I may not be able to tell much but I am done having to find my way home from the doctors office after bad news.

Can you get copies of the first and second reports? That way you won't have to try and compare films, but can read what was seen before and now.

No, the reports go directly to the doctor that ordered it and he is away all of August so appointment was scheduled for September.

Neither of us expected to get the MRI done so soon. The technician said it would be sent to the doc in three to five days, that meant he got it on friday so have been hoping he would call.

The problem is I felt pretty sure if everything was good he would have called and I figured if it was bad he would not want to tell me. Add to that he is a pychiatrist who I was sent to when other doctors decided I was crazy.

I should not still be seing him but he is really supportive and I think he feels a little bad about not doing an MRI years ago.

I have so many doctors involved in all of this that it is ridiculous (sp).

Before lyme diagnosis I had the above doctor, a chronic fatigue doctor, a social worker and a GP which I dumped, after much abuse two years ago.

Trying to streamline now, have booked appointment with neuro, which is also September and have found a new GP and I guess I have replaced the CFS doctor with an LLMD.

My pain has been extremely unbearable today so I have been thinking I might go to ER in the a.m. which is what the neuro assistant told me to do if the pain got too bad. The MRI was done at that hospital so they would have access to it and the last time I was there they consulted with the neuro doctor over the phone.

Now that I hve typed this it seems to be the most appropriate thing to do.

Sorry for rambling on, such a large answer to your simple question:)
