Hi everyone, this is my first post so bit new to all this.
I am just looking to find out if anyone else has had experience of a MRI when pregnant? I found out I was pregnant a few weeks ago with my first baby and am absolutly thrilled. It couldn’t have came at a better time as a week before that I was dealing with the news that I likely have RRMS. My neurologist has booked me in for a MRI of the head and neck but of course I didnt know I was pregnant. I have my appointment through for next Saturday.
I thought I would have to cancel as I just thought you werent allowed them when pregnant (as the neurologist asked me if I was for the consent form). I went to see my GP yesterday to confirm my pregnancy etc and I asked him. He has told me to call the xray department to ask what the risks are etc before just cancelling my appointment, which I will do on Monday when they reopen.
I have decided that if the risks are great that I wont do it as I know my pregnancy is more important to me. But at the same time it would be great to bring my diagnosis forward so I can start DMDs after my pregnancy. I had a MRI last year so I know what to expect but just wonder as its just the head and neck that they may just put something over my stomach to protect the baby?
As I mentioned I will phone up on Monday for advice but just looking to see if anybody can share anymore info the now?
