Hahaha. When my first flareup happened, they told me at County (where the poor people without insurance get pretty damned good medical care in my opinion!) that I needed to get admitted and get a room to get into the machine faster instead of weeks later. Considering that my right eye was looking at my left eye, and how bad I felt, I needed no convincing.
My roomie was a guy that had basically moved in, poor guy on motorcycle, unknown truck lost ladder, turned his leg into swiss cheese. God bless him though made a great roomie, knew all the ins and outs. Me, being the "answer every question correctly" guy, did mention that yes indeed, I DID work with metal, and NO, had no idea if had any in head or eyes etc, I mean that happened before but it always came out but you never know. Dude just laughed at me, "oh man you screwed up now you just added on 1 day to your wait", and laughed. I was like, "why?". "Cause now they have to send you for a CT scan of your head, to verify no metal in there before getting MRI lol. Well HE thought it was hilarioius haha.
Anyways no, the stents make no impact on your "MRIability". (they are nickel alloy or stainless, non-magnetic)
Oh yeah hey Arcee, good luck to you and Lew come Wednesday. We anxiously await your report! Give Dr. Haacke a high five from everyone at TIMS.....
