Chest CT Scan at 16 weeks of Pregnancy

Tina - posted on 07/22/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I had to get a cat scan 3 days before on my chest to rule out pulmonary embolism. It had to be done and it's negative. but there was a risk to the baby b/c of the radiation. Now I am in heavy anxiety not sure what's going to happen to my little one. Has anyone else had this during pregnancy and has perfectly normal children as a result? It would really help for my situation.

Ask the doctor! Not knowing and using energy on anxiety is not good for you. If your anxiety goes up, your whole system is strained. Try to relax, and remember it is good you had medical help for a possible embolism. Ask more questions. Take good care of yourself.
