Magnetic Resonance Angiography of My Head

Today, I had an MRA, or magnetic resonance angiogram, done of my head. For those of you that did not know, my mom died last month from complications after a burst brain aneurysm.

I had a stroke back in early 2005. With that, and with my mom's death, my neurologist recommended that I have an MRA done of my head. I had that done at the clinic today. The neurologist also wants me to get my homocystine levels checked to make sure my medications are still working. In addition, I saw my cardiologist earlier this week and she wants me to have my choloestrol checked. So, I'm going to get blood work done at LabCorp on Friday.

I do not know when I will be getting results. I am going to call the neurologist tomorrow and see if they need me to bring my films in or of they received their own copies from the clinic.

I'll post again when I know more. My health is good, overall. I have not had any problems or neurological symptoms. Both my cardiologist and neurologist said that I am doing well. My yearly EKG was perfectly normal.
