    Oh No (Reaction to Iodine): I had been getting scans since 2006 with no trouble tolerating the Iodine. In 2011 I had a reaction to the Iodine during the scan and spotted breathing. Had to spend the night in the emergency room. Reaction was very XXX my already run down body. No more Iodine for me, ever.
