What Is The CT Scan On Your Heart Like

What Is The CT Scan On Your Heart Like

CT given for heart because of numbness of legs like paralyzation

I have had 3 CTs and they put me out for 2 of them and it was easy. They put you to sleep when you have a CT on your heart. They pass a camera down your throat after they deaden the gag reflex with a spray, you will be awake for that part then they will put you out, who wants a patient flopping around trying to see what the camera is showing the doctor. I was awake for my first one and got to see the MRSA that was flowing like you see seaweed moving to the current of the water but in my case the beating of my heart. I was so fascinated by what I was watching MRSA looking like seaweed, in my heart attached to my aortic valve, I would watch again if I could.

I had the heart scan because my legs and feet were swelling and at times numb. Nothing was wrong with my heart. I'm an enigma!
