    Hi cj

    i have metal pins in my left foot and I have had several mris.

    Is it because the surgery was recent? Did they say why you had to wait?

    Has yourdoc checked your ears sometimes that can cause problems with dizziness.

    I've only had one MRI. That was before my back surgeries. I've got ten screws and two rods in my lumbar spine. I didn't think you could ever have an MRI if you had any metal in your body. (?)
