Tread carefully. Good luck. Answers on this are hard to find, as I have had similar. My husband was hospitalized twice after having PET scans. He had most of the side effects listed and even the rare one that is kidney failure. (Somebody has to get the "rare" side effects) It has been a nightmare for us. Google Chuck Norris' wife lawsuit. He is trying to draw attention to this problem.
