After another 3 hours in hospital I can safely reassure everyone (and myself)….it appears that because of where I was canulated for my MRI, some of the contrast solution has leak out in the tissue around the vein, causing the swelling and irritation.

Dr M was not overly concerned by it and prescribe some Ibuprofen gel to take care of the inflammation, with instructions to come back should the area change colour (other than red or normal skin colour).

There was some unusual delays for the ultrasound – it is the first time that I have had to wait for about 45 mins – but the comments from the radiographer were good.

“It is what we expected from the results of the last MRI: significant reduction of the lump”!
