I had a MRI today on my brain that my reg doctor ordered and the MRI tech said that she had ordered that he use a dye (contrast dye) to get a more clear view of my head whn he came in mind you i had to take axanax b4 going cuz anxiety.. I stopped him when he was already putting the dye in my vein and asked if he was sure he should be using this on me cuz i have a kidney disease PKD and all of a sudden he stopped and said that he had only used half of it and that he would stop there.. I had heard in the past about a contrast dye used in CT scans but thought to be safe i better ask .. So now i have been looking this stuff up and its really scary it says noone with kidney disease should have that dye cuz it can cause something like NSF which of course now im freaking out!!!!!! My kidneys do function at 100% does that make a difference?? Ayone know anything about this ?? Please any advice?
