I Have Had An X-ray

Cheers for XRAYS!!! 556 People

    Who Hasn't?

    Lots and lots of my mouth, right shoulder for a collarbone, many years later left shoulder for a collarbone, can't count how many chest X-rays, and lots of fluoroscopes of my feet to see it the shoe fits (back in the day a great sales gimmick - they were free outside the door to...

    I hated it. I had to bite this metal thing

    and 3 massive round things spun round and round my head making horrible noises like the sound of a car engine.

    Yeah

    I've had many x-rays done.  But one time was just because I closed the car door on my thumb when I was getting out of the car.  Turned out it wasn't broken but my nail turned black and blue and a bubble of blood formed on the tip of my thumb, underneath my nail...

    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...

    Thanks Xray Guys For Your Muscles

    I was in excruciating pain in March of 2011 after my hip was broken. It took not one but two visits to the emergency room to determine this. 5 xrays and a CT scan later the brilliant physicians saw that it was broken and immediately took me to the operating room. But i get ahead...

    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.

    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...

    Glowing Recommendations

    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...

    I had one today. It wasn't

    as bad as I thought. I had to stand in a really uncomfortable position in this gown that didn't close at the back- so glad I was allowed to keep my skirt on 0-o . I haven't got the results back though.

    Quite A Few....

    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.

    the years and apart from having to lay in uncomfortable positions they haven't been too bad. The one I remember most vividly was the x-ray they took of my knees after I was knocked down by a car. I arrived at A&E and the doctor did a quick assessment of my injuries (which...
