Getting worried

Well plucked up enough hypnotism based courage to go to mri scan on Sunday..big deal ,not so much as have to travel to London ,and spend the weekend as the trains made travel very difficult but i part of the forms they sent were to agree to having contrast..ie having a cannula but in ha ha i dont have any veins left even if i could deal with it. 

I managed the scan; but not the cannula.  A week has gone by and i cant shake of the headache. I keep falling asleep in the day despite going to bed early and sleeping all night. Had to by new clothes as have dropped from size 16 to size 8 ..first time ever. I only have one week left of phased return  but strugged when my boss didnt honour it for the 1st 3 weeks making me do my usual 1 8hr and 1 13hr shift a week. Oncology appointment to review scan and discuss gamma knife on the 4th June..not sure if i should ring to ask 1st or wait until june. Haem onc appointment not until next year.
