  • she's having this done to see if theres anything wrong with her liver. sometimes the good outweighs the bad. if her doctor is recommending it then its up to her if she wants to get the test done. people have xrays all the time and other people arent supposed to be in the room, so should they just allow a broken bone to heal just so that the patient doesnt get the radiation.

  • about hubby not being able to go in the room with you, my guess is that they wont expose your husband to the radiation. he doesnt need to be in the room because he's not getting a procedure done.

  • if he cant then should she even be getting it done? and radiation from xrays and stuff only hurt u if u are exposed every day for a long period of time. idk what goes on sorry:(
