Stethoscopes are a pain. I'm just trying to adapt to it. I have a Littman cardiology stethoscope, so my hearing in my ® is able to make up for it.
I called the MRI dept. They said to call my MD. It was up to them. I called my MD last week Tuesday. She was off that day, and only worked the morning on the Wednesday. They were not sure if she would get to it before Thursday. So . . . I waited and waited. Finally on Friday I called, saying that I had called on Tuesday and not heard anything. To make a long story short, after several calls, talking with a recep who acted like she was an expert on going through an MRI without medication, I just about lost it. I figured I would get more with honey than pepper, so was nice, but firm. Got what I wanted after more calls back. They gave me an rx for aprazolam. (5 pills!) Wonder why 5? Just in case? So, I guess I'm ready for Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. Will let you know how it turns out.
Ear is the same. Constant very high pitch ringing in the ear. I'm trying to block out that sound. Hasn't gotten any better, but at least hasn't worsened. Again, thanks! Audrey
