I suppose I would wonder if you are having any problems from it?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I can remember being told that unless i developed any acute abdominal discomfort, they would leave it alone.
I did take a acute reaction during an exploritory exam (bp dropped, tachycardia, nausea), i was given i.v epinepharin at that time.
Gp i investigating mrle for autoimmune disorder at present.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 11 months ago.
If you have any more serious reactions I would get it out
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The reason im curious now, is due to my current heath issues, (and that iv been refered for M.R.i scan. )
Could the coil be responsible for causing an autoimmune response??. All blood tests so far have been normal other than a liw biliruben level and also low urea & creatinin(. G.p told me that this isntrelevent.)
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 11 months ago.
Yes, it could beThe coil is designed to promote inflammation and autoimmune is all about inflammation
