Hi everyone, I am due or my 6 month follow up angiogram in December. During my postop period, I went to 3 different neurosurgeons bc of postop right sided numbness.
I am since doing GREAT. My question is: One doctor says doing just an MRA will suffice for my 6 month follow up, but the one that did my surgery wants to do an angio per protocol, not because of me personally, but bc thats what they do with every patient with coiling and stent.
My dilemma, I do not want anyone in my brain again at all and I would rather do the MRA bc it involves less risks. Just looking for suggestions. I know I am the ultimate decider, but what do you think? Has any of you had just an mra post coiling and stent as opposed to an angiogram?
