Anyone want to test their Geiger counter?

PET-CT scan carried out, so boring I fell asleep.....

3 hours being rolled very slowly through a very expensive machine, they had to knock gently on the scanner bed to wake me, in case I fell off, there's no A&E at Sussex University.

Apparently there are only 10 of these machines in the UK.

I thought it was going to be a CT scanner with the added dimension of a radioactive injection, but no, the machine actually say PET-CT on it.

And it was a bit weird being injected with a lead syringe by a doctor in a radiation suit!

I'm hoping they'll have beamed the scans to Sussex County Cancer centre where I'm going for my first Radiotherapy session tomorrow.

At least I have a good excuse for not cooking tonight!
