My husband went into acute renal failure twice after having scans with the use of Omnipque 240. He had other problems such as cognitive forgetfulness, change in voice, hallucinations, rash, burning sensations, ringing in ears, and more. He asked for a lab test and doctor doesn't want to approve of it.
A lab test to test for what? The contrast will have been eliminated long ago and I can't imagine a blood test revealing much more than his current kidney function (renal failure is a rare side effect). Your husband is displaying listed side effects of the contrast but these are supposed to disappear after 24 hours (headaches after 3 days). https://www.drugs.com/sfx/omnipaque-240-side-effects.html (not helpful that it tells you to see your doctor for advice!)
I would seriously consider getting a second opinion from someone who will listen to your concerns.
PS. the contrasting agent in iohexol is Iodine not Gadolinium.
