Post subject: Clips left in? Anyone else know?
I recently had a HSG and all 4 of my clips were there to be seen. The consultant had not removed any of them.
Can anyone else tell me from their being told or HSG were your clips left in?
Consultant says they do not always remove clips especially if they're buried deep as that only causes more trauma and worsens the outcome whereas leaving them makes no difference.
Im concerned if im lucky enough to get pregnant wont they be there waiting to 'dig in' to the womb, or bowel or smoething, anyone any thoughts on possible complications in pregnancy? Has my consultant been lazy you reckon and if so has that maybe put me at risk?

i have heard of this before. My friend had an xray - and only one showed up! Apparently they can migrate to other areas, but they dont usually cause any harm. My Cons took mine out - but it depends i suppose how much digging around they need to do. They dont want to make any more scar tissue than necessary as it can cause problems.
