I had a kidney transplant in 1978 and it failed in 32 days. I was put on hemo with fistula access and mesh graft access. I also was on peritoneal dialysis first and for a short time while hospitalized.
In 1982 I had another kidney transplant. At the time of discharge from the hospital I was given a list of things to avoid. MRI was on the list. I don't know why and/or if it was related to the contrast or sutures put in for the first kidney in 1978.
My nephrologist doesn't know, nor does any other doctor I have to deal with.
Recently, my husband had an MRI and we asked the head of the testing center about it. She told me I could have an MRI. My creatinine could support the contrast, but didn't know what the mesh for the dialysis grafts is constructed of. I would have to ask a vascular surgeon. Does anyone know?
