MRI Pics

Here's a few pictures from Saturday's scan. You can see the tumor resection area in photos 2 & 3, the other two are just really cool, yet creepy images. Hope you find them as interesting as we do! There's a lot of inflammation from the surgery, that's clear, but there doesn't seem to be any obvious tumor tissue. From here I'm guessing the doctors use this as a baseline to compare each concurrent scan, watching for changes - nothing scary.

Dan are pretty happy with the images. It's amazing how inflamed my brain is, but it's only been three months, and after last surgery there was massive inflammation for almost a year. I'm taking a lot of anti-inflammatory supplements (for example boswellia), and focusing on eating lots of anti-inflammatory foods (veggies, fruits, omegas, lean protein, etc.).

I'm very excited to read the report from Dr Liau, I hope I'm not jumping the gun and that my confidence isn't in vain. There's no harm in being happy and positive. If I end up being wrong, oh well, there's always time for disappointment later :)
