I've been offered a MRI of my pelvic region on the NHS, but I was told by the receptionist that I would have to have contrast dye injected. I don't want to have the gadolinium dye injected into me because of potential short term and particularly long term side effects...
I'm wondering if I turn up for the MRI but refuse to sign the consent form for the dye, they are likely to do the scan anyway without it. Has anyone had a successful pelvic MRI done without dye? (The MRI has been ordered because I'm suffering recto/anal pain which radiates into my left buttock and the back of my left thigh.)
Thanks in advance for any replies and your experiences regarding this.
