Hi ,just thought I would up date as I like to read up dates also and a lot of posts just end and your left wondering and..............
I met with my neurologist who was lovely and reassured me that my 15 mm anni is not life threatening as it’s in a sack ,to be quite honest I didn’t ask that many questions as all I heard was not life threatening and they will do a 6 month/12 month scan to see if it grows .
He was more interested in my Tinnitus and the strange sounds I hear from time to time so he is referring me for angiogram- all I know is the,y go through the vain and the nhs web site kindly add that 1 in 1000 have a stroke ( the neurologist did mention that some people have a stroke but it’s very rare
The angiogram will also give a bigger clearer picture of my anni as a angiogram is the gold standered he said
Sooooo my dilemma is, find out more info on side effect and then research the effects of the dye they use as I’m extremely sensitive to seafood, is it an old wives tale that the two do not go together well . I was meant to have a cat scan for a bladder problem 4 years ago and they wouldn’t carry it out as they did not have the specialist team available if I was to react to the dye on duty at that time . This has got me thinking is it the same dye they use ?
Has anyone had strange reaction to the procedure plus dye
I would appreciate any information that you guys could give me
