I am due to go in for my 3rd year follow up. I had my left kidney taken out almost 3 years ago. After reading some of what you all say I am wondering if I should have the CT Scan this time. I had 2 in the first year that looked good so he gave me a year off of the CT Scan and just a chest x ray last year. I do have a different type of contrast used that is supposedly not as hard on the kidneys. What is all of your expert opinions. This years scan will be of my chest and abdomin. Is an MRI better? Do they have to use contrast for that? Please educate me with all of your expert kowledge out there.
Thanks and Good Health to all of you!
