Sonny: I hate PET scans

Yesterday I had to have a pet scan which started off quite exciting - I got there in a cab. When we arrived we took the lifts up to Nuclear Medicine, they saw us very quickly and took us to a room with 3 beds. I had to stay in this room for the next hour and a half. I was just there while they got my contrast ready. They then came in and injected the contrast through my Hickman line, then I had to stay still for one hour while it went through my body. That was the most annoying thing I have ever had to do. The worst thing about it was that near the end your feet go so numb it starts to hurt which makes it difficult to stay still. When they said I could move again I went, you could say, crazy with wiggling. I was the equivalent of a monkey chasing a banana.


  1. Hi Sonny

    I really don't know how you managed to stay still for so long - when Louis' in bed he thrashes around like a maniac - his duvet is always mangled into a ball on the floor by the morning . So well done you - i don't think many other nearly 10 year old boys could have stayed still for more than 5 minutes! love from the Dimbylows xx
