    Thanks guys, I never take these things too seriously, after my accident in 2002 and 6 years of physio I was told never to run again and never bend over for an extended period of time......I politely told them to take me out to pasture and put me out of my misery. If your mind can do it your body will follow, if say you can't then you'll never get it done.

    In reality we're just like the cars we play with. As we get older things start to wear down and break. Routine oil changes arent that much different than eating healthy foods. Over the years I put my body through quite a bit of abuse. Not drugs or alcohol, but not the best of diets. Lots of junk food, soda. Now Im paying for it physically. Im not a fat but I could stand to lose at least 40lbs.
    I cant tell you how many CTs and MRIs Ive had over the past 10-15 years. Its a bitch to get old. Good luck with yours. Its probably something simple.

    I'm probably on the lower end of live brain cells also. Concussions, spray paint, exhaust fumes, degreaser, paint thinner, and I'm sure there's more. Hopefully everything works out for you though

    One of the things I learned at my old job. Inhalation, absorption, ingestion. The three ways to get bad shit into your body. I never drank bad stuff but I know for sure it got into my body the other two ways.
    When I was respraying my interior parts I had a little "issue" with Bulldog adhesion promoter. I was doing a little color sample on a small piece of plastic. Put a tiny bit of color in my detail gun. I sprayed the piece with Bulldog first. Never though of putting on the respirator. I also forgot to put the cap back on the Bulldog can. I gotta tell you guys. I got real sick. Real quick.
    I figured I would go into the house and sit in the AC for a few minutes. I started puking before I even got to the deck. Drank some water, sat inside for a bit.
    When I went back to clean the gun and put crap away the second I opened the door and got a whiff of that crap it started all over again. I had to cover my face with a wet rag just to go inside. I keep my mask in my bottom box in a closed zip lock bag. Now I know. I'll NEVER spray anything without that respirator again. Live and learn. Im sure that craps still in my lungs or liver.

    The stupid things we do and have done. I have abused my body also have a feeling I will pay for it. I do pretty good now having lost 50 pounds 10 years ago. I exercise and watch what I eat now. When we are exposed to that medical issue we have to do the research to ask the right questions. Considering our medical profession could be a lot worse. I just wish everybody the best of luck with their health. Just go to Wal-Mart and look at the people. Pretty scary. Good luck again on the results PontiacGP

    I am surprised I don't glow in the dark, After three total hip replacements and four other surgery's, Bone scans, MRI's and so many X-Rays I have lost count. I have been injected with Radioactive junk, Drank barium twice. Maybe that's why I turn Green when I get mad.....Hmmmm ? Good luck with your scans and I hope everything works out for the best.

    MRIs and barium arent radioactive. Its the nuclear scans that I worry about. Over the years Ive had 3 bone scans where they gave me an injection of something that came in a lead lined box. Same with nuclear stress tests. You know its not good when they tell you not to go near pregnant women for a few days. LOL
    The last stress test I had set off radiation monitors at my job a week later. I dont think that was a good thing.

    On the plus side, they're already broken; you can do no further damage.
