Short story: Has anyone every had hemoclips put in after a colonoscopy? Were you able to get an MRI?
Long Story: I had three hemoclips put in after my colonoscopy.
A note was added to my account that I should not get an MRI. So the one radiology franchise that my insurance will allow won't give me the MRI due to the hemoclips. (I need MRI for further investigation of adrenal mass found on CT) My GI doctor has now said they are safe for MRI and is working on providing documentation to the radiology company. My Oncologist says he has never had a radiology location deny an MRI due to hemoclips as he said that would mean half his patients couldn't get MRI's.
I'm confident 1 has fallen out having witnessed this with my own eyes and kept it as a momento lol. Hoping the others have as well.
I had to appeal with my insurance to go to a different location as I'm trying to move this along instead of "waiting" on people to do their job. I've gotten approved by the insurance to go to another location for a PET and MRI. I asked if the PET scan can be done first to determine if the clips have officially fallen out (cause naturally I'm still nervous about getting an MRI with them in there) but has anyone had any issue like this???????
