For the past several years now, I’ve had no issues with my BCIR, and tend to forget that there are a few precautions to keep in mind. One of these precautions is that it is critical to alert any Non-BCIR doctors of your BCIR pouch as it can look like an obstruction on an x-ray. You wouldn’t want the medics trying to clear what looks like an emergency blockage that could result in serious damage to the BCIR.
Some people wear the medical bracelets, but I’ve found that just a handy card in my wallet is good enough for me. I also let everyone in my life know of my situation, so just in case I do show up unconscious at the hospital, my friend/ family could pass my medical situation on to the doctor, or get the card out of my wallet of which also has my BCIR doctor’s info.
