Contrast in MRI adverse effects
I have regularly scheduled MRIs with contrast. The contrast is called ProHance. Every time the contrast goes in, I vomit, and once I stop I can go in the tube and continue my MRI. The last two times I’ve had a MRI, I’ve gotten a terrible rash with bumps and streaks on my arm. I look a bit like a druggie. The first time, my oncology thought I had Shingles and put me on an antiviral medicine. Since it happened a second time, neither of us thinks it is Shingles. Has anyone had this experience, and are there any alternatives? After my MRI, I am wiped out and experience nausea the rest of the day. I seriously dread my MRI. I just completed year three of remission, so I still have two more years to experience this.
