I am beginning to get a high BUN & Creatine level. This started after I begin to have back/leg pain. The doctors gave me numerous MRI's, Cat Scan and a Lapinectomy, all with contrast. They always and still insists that they cannot get a good reading without the contrast. After several test, I happen to read about the contrast dye and confronted my doctors and they still insist. I convinced them to do a blood test but they would not tell me the results and gave me the contrast anyway. Saying it was just a mild small dose... My BUN test went up to 31, then 33, then 42 and now it is back down to 33. The last 3 blood test done it is remaining at 33. The Creatinine 1.50, 1.60. Now at 1.50.
Am I at risk and is there anything preventative that I should do. Also, should I refuse a test if they are going to use contrast dye?
It appears that i am heading for one or prehaps two more surgeries because I have pinced nerves in my upper back and also my lower which is severely painful and my legs are hurting and produces a sensation of giving way or "catching" ("locking").
