My Doctor is considering an MRI to to help find potential disk problems in L5-S1 area. When she called she was concerned because they see metal clips in hip area from the XRAY. She asked if I had had any surgical procedures that would involve metal. The only surgery I've had was an emergency appendectomy in 1997. I need to know if metal clips are something that are normally used for this procedure. The only things I was aware of going in my body were a scope under the belly button and 2 small surgical tools in low pelvic area. Please inform.....Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
