15th december 2017

Another MRI scan completed today, a little snooze in a magnetic tube courtesy of the NHS Nottingham City Hospital. Scan went fine as usual but won’t get scan results until January 2018. Slight bruising left around vein this time which is unusual as they are pretty good at not leaving a mark, no bleeding so no big issue there.

While looking at the facebook support groups I am part of, someone had posted information about Gadolinium poisoning from contrast dye causing serious health issues and in some cases hospitalisation. Ever scan I have has had contrast dye used but I am not sure which one, I have seen Gadolinium on paperwork from previous scans but it is not mentioned on the one today. I’ve not has any side affects so wondering if anyone has?
