MRI-E or Magnetic resonance (MR) enterography: What to expect?
Had this test last week at Mayo. I wish I would have been better prepared. Wear depends,bring wipes,extra depends and a change of clothes. I got through the test but horrific diarrhea immediately afterward. This lasted about three hours. I could not make it to the restroom. I was so embarrassed and angry. No one in radiology helped me. I made a huge mess and cleaned with paper towels as best I could. Then the walk of shame back to the hotel for several showers. Later I talked to GI and they told me every floor has patient care packages. They contain a depend, scrubs, large paper like towel. I wish I would have known this. At least all of you now know what to do if it ever happens to you,you’ll now where to get some help. I am going to have a very difficult time ever going to radiology again!
