He does not look

At me anymore

I am damaged, ruined…

A shell with no stuffing–

I knew it would end, just

Not this way. [  ]

Sestamibi Scan posted 27 July 2017

Yesterday Andrew accompanied me to St Vincent’s nuclear Medicine department for a Sestamibi Scan, called ” Mibi” for short, of my heart.

The process involves a baseline scan without any medium followed by a period of rest, you can read about everything through these links here.

Sestamibi Scan – “Mibi”

A sestamibi (MIBI) scan is a test that measures the amount of blood being supplied to your heart.

What is a sestamibi scan?

A sestamibi (MIBI) scan measures the amount of blood being supplied to your heart. The scan is done in two parts:

  1. At rest – sitting and breathing normally
  2. After a chemical or physical stress test – when your heart is beating faster after exercising on a treadmill or exercise bike[   ]      ST. Vincent’s Hospital Heart Health – Sestamibi Scan

What Is A Nuclear Heart Scan?

A nuclear heart scan is a type of heart disease test. It is also known as nuclear stress testing and radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging. It is performed to assess the condition and health of the heart. During the test, a doctor will inject a radioactive material or dye called a tracer through the vein into the bloodstream. The tracer travels along the veins towards the heart and special cameras outside the body can trace its journey. Two sets of images will be taken. First, the patient will undergo an exercise stress test or chemical stress test so that their blood flow can be monitored while ‘stressed’. The second set of images will be taken several hours or a few days later when the patient is at rest. The two sets of images will be compared for signs of any blockages and areas of damaged heart muscle.  [ http://www.womens-health-advice.com/heart-disease/testing.html  ]

All in all the scan only took 4 hours rather than the 6 mentioned and wasn’t as scary as we had thought.

Due to the radioactivity I was warned to take a taxi home and to stay away from people for 48 hours until the Technetium Tc 99m sestamibi reached safer levels.. Andrew and I took the long blue and white taxi home raight to our doorstep and went out shopping today after I came home from respite.

I feel somewhat tired and done it and have gone to bed early these past few nights but will be opening the Shed at Kooloora tomorrow.
