I go for a CT scan on the sixth. I got to have that contrast stuff. it's been a while since my last one and that was for my heart. the laying flat is a pain ,hard to breath. any tips to get through it more comfortably?

      If you ask them they will put a wedge under your knees . It helps take the pressure off your back and they even give me a thin pillow or roll a towel and put under my head . I have to have a CT every year on my heart due to an aortic aneurysm in the top of my heart

        @Nana25 still haven't got my appointment for my scan . My doctor won't call me . I left a message and said they never sent the info they asked for so my insurance has turned me down and I can't get it.

      Is COPD responsible for high heart rate and heart failure?

      Well my CT scan was a bust. Apearantly my hospital don't do what my doctor ordered and they didn't even know where I go to get it done. The made my appointment knowing what my doctor ordered then after all the waiting and getting registered for it I get told they can not do it. This is second time I was sent somewhere to get it and couldn't. I'm really fed up with all of it .

      Try to stay calm if you can.
