    Hi there @susan160 and a big welcome from me too. :)

    I'm sorry to hear you're not getting any answers, nerve pain can be a very tricky thing to pin down.  But I hope they can get to the bottom of things asap.  I'd try not to worry, they'll often ask for a second scan, this could just be due to something they missed the first time around, or they're wanting to get a closer look at something.

    No problem @susan160, but again, I echo what Beaver has said and please try not to worry. I'm sure if it was anything worrying, they'd have said already, but I do understand your concern.
