  • after he reviews the imaging studies . Is he aware that you are having difficulty with urination? And any other symptoms you may be having? It is important that he is made aware of any and all symptoms in regard to your current condition.
    When are you having the MRI? If I were you, I would make a follow up appointment for a couple of days post MRI so that he has the report and can go over the images and report with you.
