Well, folks, I'm about due for my one-year MRI. When I had radiosurgery, they gave me a prescription slip for the MRI. It just says "MRI head, with contrast." One would think that would be sufficient for insurance, but no, they wanted me to get a referral from my primary. So I called my primary (they know everything about my AN and the treatment), and they said that they wouldn't schedule the MRI unless I brought the prescription slip to them. It was almost as if they thought I had a fake prescription for oxycontin or something.
It kind of makes me wonder how often people with brain tumors present fake prescription slips for MRIs. Honestly, I don't care for MRIs very much. They're loud, cramped, inconvenient and not all that much fun, and you can bet that I wouldn't be getting one if I didn't HAVE TO.
Anyway, everything's ok now that they have that little paper and the MRI is scheduled for December 1st. I'll take any thoughts/prayers/well-wishes/toasts that you guys have to offer.
