Brain MRI: It's not horrible news, just not what I wanted


Recommended Posts

Well, the lesion that was treated several months ago is a little larger, associated with slightly increased edema in the surrounding tissue. "The changes favor treatment related change but close imaging surveillance in 3-4 months is recommended." 

Dang. I wish it were conclusive. I see my superstar oncology radiologist Friday and really look forward to it. 

Doesn't lung cancer often seem to be the disease of endless waiting? 

But, two weeks from today I'll be in one of my favorite places in the world with family and dear friends. I'm getting excited. And soon I'm going out for a bike ride. I'm a lucky duck, for sure.

So sorry to hear that Karen but hopefully your radiologist can give you a better idea of where you go from here. Yes I agree that lung cancer is an endless waiting game. Enjoy your bike ride and have a great time visiting friends and family!
