I just had a routine chest xray and metal clips "probably related to gastric bypass surgery" show in upper left quadrant.
This was a shocker to me. I would have thought that if metal clips were going to be part of the procedure that I would have been told. So of course I am wondering if they've been left there by mistake.
I'll be calling my surgeon in the morning - but I have had a dull discomfort in that area that never completely went away - and now I can hardly wait until morning. Does anyone know if using metal clips/staples is part of the surgery?
