Ok so I got an FDG brain Pet scan a couple days ago and no one told me any of the details of what this actually does! I have severe cognitive impairment with memory and thinking and my doctor was concerned about blood flow patterns and early dementia (i'm 18) So I take two antidepressants and klonopin (also a beta blocker) but they didn't seem to care and didn't even ask what the names were. So they faxed a paper with the "results" which in two sentences says the Fdg uptake is ok and the colors look symmetrical or w/e....Well i know i have severe cognitive impairment so does this just mean it is not a metabolic problem? What does that even leave left? Does this test show my brains metabolism and blood flow from over a long period of time or just at that minute? Because the day i got it i id not sleep that night, i didn't take my morning meds, and i was nervous as ***l and straining to keep my arms from falling off the table the whole time(really thin table) Could those have effected the results? Please someone help me and tell me that I didn't pay so much just to see if my "colors" were aligned! They are sending me a disc.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
