Dave's bonkitis tumor "appears" to be gone!

Remembering Dave

Recommended Posts

Dave had a brain MRI last week. He got some sketchy details about it on Monday when he was in for chemo. So I decided today to call the oncologist and get the specific lowdown. Well, he said that, in his opinion, the tumor is gone. The swelling is increased, but he believes that is reaction to the radiation Dave had to the bonkitis area. there is "a little something" pushing into the brain but for some reason he doesn't seem concerned about it, perhaps it is scarring or something?

I was so worried, because Dave's behavior is getting, well, can we say a little erractic? I was so afraid he had a brain met. But the good doc said he's probably just totally beaten up from everything he's been through lately. Although it is very hard to live with, it is very understandable.

Anyway, he's ordered an MRI of the orbit (the eye socket) just to get a better look at things, keep everything you have two of crossed that it doesn't reverse his opinion!

Repeat of the brain MRI in a month or so, he said.
