One More Question - MRI

Postby queenofpain » 13 Jan 2014, 16:25

What is an MRI for the anal area like? They don't have to insert anything do they? My CRS told me not to waste my money, but I need to know why I can't conquer pain once for all.

Hi QOP,
I had an MRI to look if anything else was going on back there other than Fissures. It is done through a pelvic MRI. You lie in a chamber and they take different shots of the area. Nothing inserted thankfully. It might help to rule out anything else going on in that area. Good luck...
