My son has psuedoarthrosis and when he was 13 months old the orthopedic put a rod in his tibia and fibula (I think it is a william's rod, but I'm not sure). When he was 24 months old they moved the rods up about a half inch because the rods were in his ankle cartilage.
He is now a month away from being 3 years old. His neurologist and ophthalmologist wants him to get an MRI. I explained to both of them that he has a rod in his leg and that the M part of the MRI means magnet and that magnets attract metals. They both said it shouldn't be a problem.
Have any of you who have metal in your body ever had an MRI? Tell me about it
