surgical clip from a previous gall bladder surgery..kidney

This answer was rated:

I have a surgical clip from a previous gall bladder surgery that has somehow moved close to and behind my kidney. Should it be removed?
Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Do NOT do anything - surgical clips are stainless steel and they do NOT cause any troubles.
And, the MRI will NOT touch the clip because stainless is NOT magnetic.
I hope this helps, if you have more questions, please ask.
