you do not
I don't understand the requirement of a 12 hour fast for this MRI
but that's what they want
so simply do not eat anything more
make sure to get there on time
tell them you did the twelve hour fast
if they get you in on time then the MRI is such a good study that a ten hour fast will be more than adequate
but chances are that they will be a little slow and the scan may be a little late and it may turn out to be 12 hours anyway
in any case
very important test for you, and best to get it now and not have to reschedule
the radiologists will be perfectly able to read the scan
Will do. Thank you so much for your medical advice. I feel relieved and a lot less stress for tomorrow.
i wish you a simple test and good results
do you have any further questions for me about this?
Thank you. I'm all set. That was my only question. Have a good evening.
