Hello,I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
The older surgical clips were not MRI compliant and an MRI can damage the abdominal viscera during MRI.
If the surgical clips are tried to be removed; there can be chance of further adhesions. Any additional surgery predispose for potentially newer adhesions. Secondly, these clips are embedded in the dense adhesions (which is basically scar formation in and around the intestines and peritoneal cavity). And removing this dense scar is not easy, especially with Crohn's disease which too form scar all around and there can be bowel damage.
I understand this is not a good and encouraging news, and I am sorry about it. But I have to be honest with you.
