I can relate with you on your concern of the amount of x-ray radiation you have had.<br />
<br />
3: CT scans of neck<br />
2: CT scans of chest<br />
2: CT scans of abdomen<br />
2: CT scans of pelvic<br />
-Barium Swallow exam<br />
and can't count how many chest x-rays<br />
all of the ct scans and barium swallow were all after I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, but I wonder if the amount of chest x-rays I may have done was the cause of my thyroid cancer.....hmmm. I'm concerned now that I have something else goin on with me, and not to forget the radioactive iodine I had to take for my cancer, Dr. says it raises my chances slightly of get lymphoma. Oh, and just FYI, MRIs do not use radiation.

WOW!<br />
Thank goodness you are okay.<br />
I have never had an x-ray.<br />
<br />
Thank you for this story. :)<br />

i think, you need to change the group name to I HAVE X-RAYS!!
