Hi Sarah

What a great question. Under no circumstance should anyone have a lymphangiogram done today.

Under no circumstance should anyone have a lymphangiogram done today. There are possible complications because of the dye used. See our info page for this.

It is important, Sarah, for you to cancel that test. No one can force you to have one and based on the medical evidence I frankly feel it would be medical malpractice to try to force you to have one.

Instead have the lymphoscintigraphy done.

BTW, what is the reason you are given for having any test at all?
