The 6-week timeframe can be important for certain operations.

 Sometimes with endoscopy, particularly when biopsies are taken, your doctor can use endoscopy clips. These clips will naturally fall off and leave the body, but this can take a few weeks. After 6 weeks we would not expect any clips to remain.

 Generally, surgeries that do not involve certain implants are ok to scan within 6-weeks. However, we also take into consideration whether you would be comfortable having an MR scan while you are recovering.
