Hi, I have just received a letter from the mri department saying my consultant wants another mri scan and also tests for kidney functio. My next scan is a week Thursday. This is my second mri scan my last one was two weeks ago. Have to say I'm alittle concerned as they don't order these things unless they have found something bad. Any advice pls as to why or what they might have found!!! Xx
Called in for second mri scan!! - Endometriosis UK
They may have found endo on or in your urinary tract or evidence of your endo affecting kidney function (ie swollen/dilated kidney)
I have endo on my bladder,but having really bad kidney pain. Anyway I've had kidney ultrasound to rule out stones and they've tested blood and urine for infection. They did find blood in my urine but no infection. I suspect my endo may be in bladder as well.
I've read that it's rare for endo around urinary system..about 1-4% on bladder..and it's even rarer for it to grow on or in kidneys.
However if it's constricted your ureters, that could cause some kidney issues.
I'm having an mri end of month as well. I found a really good medical paper on endo in urinary system which I'll try and link.
Hi Lindle, thank you for your message. Yes I am with top endo specialist who is on the list. I have already been told that the endo is very severe and is covered my left ureter. Apparently it's everywhere. I suffer with excruciating back and kidney pain, I lost over a stone in weight,without trying,in 4 months and feel really ill daily. I guess having another mri is for my consultant to double check where endo is etc but my last mri scan took well over an hour,which is why I'm surprised to be called in for another one so soon,it's only been 10 days since my last scan. I will be seeing my gp and consultants next week so I will be asking for my results from the last scan. Thank you so much. You are a gold mine of information and I am very grateful there's someone like you who we can all come to with our concerns. Many thanks hugs xx
