My xray experience.

So I went in for a chest xray. I'm a verteran of this process and I hate to change at the hospital. So I wore a sports bra under my tshirt. No metal, so no changing. I got checked in at the desk and the lady said "Oh you get these a lot, so you know the drill right?" Yup, I have a seat and wait for my xray person to call me.

My xray person called me in a couple of minutes and we headed back to the room. She then notices that I'm not wearing a humilating hospital gown. "Is there any metal in your bra?" she asks.

I say no. She says "No clasps or hooks or anything? Because I'd just have to have you change and redo the xrays which gives you more radiation."

"No metal, I get these all time so I know how it goes."

She takes the first shot of my back. Before she even gets back into the room I have turned around for the side shot and I'm holding onto the bar above my head. She kind of giggled and said "Oh! You really do know what you're doing!" Damn skippy!
