I am having an MRI tomorrow for an unknown spot on my left

This answer was rated:

Hello. I am having an MRI tomorrow for an unknown spot on my left ovary. Arrival is 7:15 am. I was supposed to do a 12 hour fast. I worked late, completely forgot and ate at 8:50pm when I got home. That would put me at a little over 10 hours. Do I need to reschedule my MRI?
911DOC :

no

911DOC :

you do not

911DOC :

I don't understand the requirement of a 12 hour fast for this MRI

911DOC :

but that's what they want

911DOC :

so simply do not eat anything more

911DOC :

make sure to get there on time

911DOC :

tell them you did the twelve hour fast

911DOC :

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

911DOC :

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

911DOC :

in any case

911DOC :

very important test for you, and best to get it now and not have to reschedule

911DOC :

the radiologists will be perfectly able to read the scan

JACUSTOMER-4ay2rn1z- :

Will do. Thank you so much for your medical advice. I feel relieved and a lot less stress for tomorrow.

911DOC :

very good

911DOC :

i wish you a simple test and good results

911DOC :

do you have any further questions for me about this?

JACUSTOMER-4ay2rn1z- :

Thank you. I'm all set. That was my only question. Have a good evening.
