I have diabetes. The last 3 times the dye was used - even with preparation beforehand - really messed up my kidneys. Had to stay in the hospital a few days longer to get the numbers down for the kidney. Otherwise no issues.
Hi, I am a 39 yr old woman, was told I had a tricuspid valve prolapse when I was 18,..recently with an event monitor I was found to have extra beats, missing beats, and a bit fast at times, my normal is 60 beats a min with blood pressure usually not over 110, but durring this monitoring I had an eppisode of going up to 265 beats,.they refer to it as RVOT VT..so they said I need an ablation epstudy....I just saw on the web that they use dye,...20 years ago I had a bad reaction to IVP dye durring a test on my kidneys...now what?
My mom had a heart attack 3 months ago. She is 72. She is allergic to the dye but they gave it to her to do a cath and now she is on dialysis and having pain with each treatmen. Her treatments are Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings.
I don't think it is right for my mom to suffer for someone else's mistake.
