I guess not many people's blogs have a full frontal (Anterior) and rear (Posterior) picture of the blogger without clothes.
What a relief it is a skeletal scan rather than a normal photograph!
I gather this shows no signs of cancer in the bones nor signs of gross tumours elsewhere. It was a huge relief when I was declared 'bone sound'! It is not a deffinite repriev but it is not the death sentence it might have been.

04-Apr-2011 - 10:10hrs? - Royal Gwent - Full Body Bone Scan
Be in for 09:30hrs. pick up bloods sheet from urology & see phlebotomy FIRST - the Radiography for the full skeletal scan on a machine quite like this:
The shadow of the remaining kidney on the Right side.
The massive hernia to Left abdomen
The skeletal distortion due to hernia.
This is the same Anterior image but on a 'Pulse' setting! Yeah, I'm not sure what the settings are/mean but when I find out I'll add it in!
The remaining Right Kidney shows up much better on this scan where it is closer to the back than front.
You can also see the spinal deformity due to the very visible Left side hernia.
This is the same Posterior image but on a 'Pulse' setting! Yeah, I'm not sure what the settings are/mean but when I find out I'll add it in!
