It was wide open and not even remotely claustrophobic. Allow me a short digression: The first one I had done was in a machine so close and tight that I decided right then and there I would never have one of these things done again without bringing along a sleep mask.
So this time I brought along my sleep mask too.
But the whole process took only about a half hour, and there I was waiting for the transport guys to come get me to take me back.

Another van ride to physio and an exercise session with Miss Aisling. She showed me where my weaknesses are and how to overcome them with some pretty simple but tough exercises.
When we finished I told her I was just going to go catch the bus home, so we agreed that on the last day of therapy I would come in earlier in the day and not need a ride from the transport fellows.
