    Dear Pegster:

    Hi! <img src="graemlins/hi.gif" border="0" alt="[hi]" />

    Really well spoken statement of facts about pain control politics! I think it's good you posted it to remind us all and reset the mark to where it should be focused: on the patient!!

    Hugs,

      Dye for CT Scan

      Hi,

      I had an abdominal CT Scan three days ago where they did connect an IV to administer the dye for contrast purposes. They were mainly checking my liver and gall bladder areas. An ultrasound showed a mild obstruction in those areas and the radiologist recommended that I have the CT Scan.

      My question is this: for anyone with IC who has gone through this Scan with the dye did they find that it irritated their bladder and if so did it last for very long. I had a Pamidronate infusion last year (for severe osteoporosis) and it took three months to get out of my system and for my bladder to calm down. I was surprised when I went to the Imagining area because I had not been told anything about the IV and dye ahead of time.

      Thanks for any help or information.

      Louise
