I Have Had An X-ray

Cheers for XRAYS!!! 503 People

    Just Once

    My parents weren't big on taking me to the doctor, so there are a million times I should have had an x-ray lol, but didn't. I started having chest pains when I was 12. Sort of crippling and deep and sharp, under my bust. At the peak, it was happening up to and beyond 4...

    So Many

    I have had so many in my lifetime that I have lost count.  Between x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, full body bone scans and a myelograph, I should be glowing.

    3 That I Can Remember

    My X-rays

    I've had x-rays done on my leg, ankles, stomach, chest, and teeth.  That's probably waaaay too much radiation.

    I Fell Down

    I was how old, quite young... eight-ish, perhaps? And I was shimmying up one of the poles that held my friend's balcony up.  I fell. Landed. In pain in the hip/leg area.  Didn't want to move. Was scared to move. Friend's parents gently carried me and rushed me to the...

    I've had four x-rays so far.  Three had to do with ulcers, and one for my bladder. I was too stressed and worried and intense as a young man.  Guess I thought thriving on stress was a good thing.  By the time I was twenty, however, I'd burned a hole in my...

    Thumb

     Broke my thumb in a dumpster accident Nov 2006. The most painful 6 months of my life. I ended up having countless x-rays done on the thumb to see how the healing was progressing. Was pretty cool, and I think I still have the ER x-rays somewhere.

    Just This Week

    I had one just this week to confirm my doctor's diagnosis of pneumonia.  I like the fact that radiology has gone digital now so as soon as the x-ray's been taken the radiologist can look at it and often you get to see it right away too.  No more waiting for the film to...

    I am sure I have had some that I can't remember. The one I do remember is when I hurt my fingers during gymnastics and they had to be xrayed. I have also had lots of dental xrays as well, especially recently.

    I was in a minor car accident and my neck was very painful so I had an x ray, which was clear. I remember being asked to take off my jewelry and my bra but I wasn't wearing one because it was in the wash!
