Has anyone had a reaction to the contrast dye used when having a CT scan?
I had a scan on Thursday the first I'd had since being diagnosed with Lymphoedema and wearing knee high compression tights. Staff were aware of my condition and the only advice given was to drink fluids before hand and stop my metformin (I'm also diabetic) when I went to put my tights on Friday morning feet were blotchy which they are sometimes when I've had a bad night or its been hot, when I took the tights off in the evening it looked like I was wearing red socks. Elevated legs and the redness went down same thing happened Saturday so rang 111, feet weren't hot and not swollen well not anymore than usual so they said take antihistamine and drink fluids to flush dye out of system. Feet were the same today going to ring lymph nurse and GP in the morning .
