The MRI?

You know what I hate? I hate when you break your ankle in 2 places and it seems to be healing kind of and then you go to your doctor after six weeks and he says, "hmmmm.....well, let me know if you want to get an MRI soon."  Okay, hold the phone.  First off, Why would I WANT an MRI?  And secondly, how would I know if it would be appropriate to have an MRI? Sure everyone knows I'm really good at diagnosing medical problems, but how am I supposed to know what to do where this MRI request is concerned?

If I really think about it, I'm probably going to have to request an MRI. Evidence #1: My pal at work today said, "You're not getting better.  You're getting worse. Look at how you're walking."  Evidence #2:  I'm still in quite a bit of pain in the region of the ankle.  Man alive.  This ankle thing is putting me in a wicked bad mood. I wonder if I'll ever be well again.  Bottom line.  I'm feeling somewhat frustrated.

1) Dang it! I wish I hadn't opened your last link.
2) I am frustrated with you. The doctor needs to tell you to get an MRI (or don't get one). Really? What is this craziness?
3) What are the plans? What does the doctor think the MRI will show? Does he have any ideas?
4) Oops! Now I've frustrated you more.

Take care. I'll be sending positive thoughts your way (but probably not the way of the doctor unless he's in direct contact with you).
