ok, im not "all" the time but, let me tell you a little secret, since my first diagnosis, and my very first "Scan", whether P.E.T, CT, MRI etc, i found out i was "claustro Phobic". No biggy right?, i yelled "let me out this mutha lover!!' & we rescheduled me with Adavans to take for my new found "anxiety" problem, {this was 2008}. Since then, and after quite a few thousand scans since, ive remembered to bring my Adavans like clockwork, i would remember those then i would my wallet!..well, today was my first of three scans to be completed by Nov 15th, today was the Bone scan & i forgot my Adavans! i tried, believe me i did, i got on the table & started huffin' & puffin" so pissed! & because it was late in the day, gettin some was not an option, its rescheduled for next Wed, ill call each day till then for posible "cancel's" by someone...I HATE MYSELF right now!...thanks for letting me get this off my chest...

Don't be too hard on yourself, it's overwhelming enough dealing with Melanoma and all the BS that we have to do to care for ourselves. I'm sure your brain was busy when you forgot your Ativan! Kuddos for getting through it!

Glad it's off your chest now. Dealing with melanoma is enough to handle and then on top, all the scans, side effects, biopsies, etc. We all get forgetful once in a while and it's definitely frustrating when it's something thats going to help you get through a difficult time. Hope you are doing better this evening and that they can get you in sooner. 

Hang in there warrior!

I have the same problem, I feel if I have to make a quick exit from the tube, I'm gonna break something and bleed a lot. My first one, way back, the tech said: "Don't open your eyes". I was out in ten seconds and rescheduled after waiting a year. Lorazapam is wonderful, and makes SoCal freeways way more fun, even when my wife is driving.
