I wouldn't think something would be used that would be unsafe for use with MRIs, but I would ask to make sure. I had the Transobturator Sling (TOT) surgery Dec '08 and mesh is used as a sort of hammock, but I think I recall it was made of polypropylene material. I also have clips where my gallbladder was removed and they were not harmful when I later had MRIs, also have a titanium plate w/screws in my neck and no problem with MRI with that either. If the metal isn't magnetic, there isn't a problem with MRIs. Ask your doc for confirmation so you can be at peace.
(((hugs))) and blessings to you.
That's what I'm having is the TOT sling. I also had my gallbladder removed years ago and it has never caused a problem with MRI's so I'm sure this won't either. It's funny how your mind just thinks of mesh as metal, but I"m sure I'm wrong.
Thanks for the replies and I do have it on a list of questions for him tomorrow!
Just getting nervous and too many things coming to mind I guess.
You're going to love your TOT! I was sore for a little longer than I expected, but it is great!
Don't feel bad about asking too many questions. I think I have asked friends more than once if they have had a hyst; I seem to forget that I have asked them already...my mind is on overload these days! Let us know how your appt goes!
