As a continuation on the series about my Ambulatory EEG, it is definitely going to happen. It is scheduled for about two weeks from now.
My Ambulatory EEG will be 48 hours long. It will take about 1.5 hours for them put all the electrodes on me. I go back to the hospital 48 hours later to have them taken off in about 10 minutes. They want to test me during my everyday activities to see if I am having seizures that I am unaware of.
Since I normally take the subway and buses, I am concerned with how I will get there without having too many people staring at me. If I buy a scarf and hoodie, maybe I can hide all the wires.
The hospital that I have to go to is kind of far away. Getting a ride from Uber is out of the question since it would cost me about $40 one-way. I am a bit self-conscious about wearing the equipment, but I don’t want to pay that much money to go to and from the hospital.
Here is kind of what it looks like. This picture doesn’t show it well, but there are a few wires that connect the electrodes on your head to the equipment around your waist. If I am feeling ambitious, you may be able to convince me to take a glamour shot of myself while wearing the equipment. 🙂
