I just had cervical fusion surgery 6 weeks ago. I also had lumbar fusion surgery 5 years ago. I am female and 52 years of age. Because of awful and new pain I was having a Dr. suggested I have an MRI but it was only one week after my Cervical fusion surgery. The radiologist said that it would not be a good idea at all to do this yet due to the heat involved in the plate inserted during my surgery.
Anyway have this ever happen? Or does anyone understand what/why or how this "plate" has something or can due something with the heat of an MRI?
If anyone can answer and help me out, please do.
