So my plan was to get a Cone scan, after hearing good things about it's ability to pick up ES (regular ct scan did not catch it), and I have just learned that I'm pregnant :)
This sort of sets the whole thing off, as I'm now concerned about the radiation, and have to research the type of "scatter" the radiation gives off.
Anyway, one of my main concerns is that by waiting to get a cone scan, that I am putting myself in some sort of danger, because perhaps it is pressing on an artery.... I get so many headaches lately on the right side, so much aching pain under my ear (the end of the bone, I think) and I'm just really worried something will happen to me.
Does anybody have any thoughts or insight on the dangers of waiting, should it be pressing on something vascular, or any thoughts on the cone scan? I am not looking to get a surgery while pregnant, I just want to make sure that nothing is pressing. Not sure if the cone scan will even show this, does anyone know?
ps- Would a regular CT scan definitely show if something was pressing on a vascular artery? Because my ct was "unremarkable" for ES, however, my point in all of this is to make sure there's nothing dangerous going on.
