I've had many off and on over the years on my back, knees, ankles and shoulders since 1979 but mostly for my lower back. The first one for me was really tough but each one got easier. Now they have "Open MRI's" which are a lot better just tell your Doctor you want to do an Open MRI so he can set you up. They have a lot more today than they had several years ago but since I've had two major lower back fusions were they placed metal plates in fusing all but L1 & L2 in my lower back I have to do a LUMBAR MYELOGRAM.
It is less of a problem to be poor, than to be dishonest.
