There Are Few Things I Want To Know

Hi, I had MRI done yesterday and they did it with contrast. My arm feels weird after what I went through and I feel something sharp in my arm. I feel like the nurse did something in a way that a little something is in my arm. It feels sharp by touch and I'm afraid to touch it and take it out. I'm afraid if I do something my arm starts bleeding. I'm having the rest of the MRI done on Saturday and I'm seeing my doctor on Tuesday for followup and everything. Do you think it's okay that I leave it with the way my arm feels until Tuesday so my doctor helps me with this?

The other thing I want to know is that I experience symptoms of PCOS and I'm in process of taking care of this matter I want to know for PCOS is gynecologist the right person to know more about this or a different doctor because I asked a gynecologist they didn't know much and my DHEA level is really high? My oncologist is helping me with all this because I was told that I have a benign tumor near my kidney. I was told when such thing gets removed the DHEA level goes back to normal. For such thing that gets removed can it also cure PCOS symptoms? Please let me know soon.

Thank You,

Hi, Thanks for your reply. I didn't hurt my arm during the MRI. I had contrast and you know when they insert a kind of needle to the arm I don't know the name in what the insert to the arm though, they leave it with a small tube to attach another tube to give the contrast. When I was done with the procedure they took out the needle thing from my arm and by this morning I realized I feel so much pain in my arm. I touch the area where it was inserted and I feel like a little sharp thing is in my arm. I'm afraid to touch it and make it bleed out or something. Do you think I should touch it to try to take out if something is there or wait till Tuesday and let my doctor do it?

I will see what my doctor will say regarding my results and I will talk to him about PCOS to know which GYN is best that I see. I'm so patiently waiting for everything. Thanks for the info.

Hi Melissa

Sorry about your arm! An MRI is non invasive, how did you hurt it? You need to ask your doctor about your concerns. You are asking us for medical advice/directives that we cannot answer.

With regard to the tumor, yes, removal and help with your DHEA levels. As to whether it will help with PCOS - we cannot speculate on that.

For a GYN to not know about PCOS is extremely strange. It's like a midwife not knowing anything about childbirth.

An OB/GYN should be able to help you, or also an Endocrinologist.

You can ask your doctor for a referral.
