MRI Images

No obvious uptake of contrast dye. Nerve wracking morning. The T2 flair appears to have increased, and the definitions have expanded in a couple of directions, but all-in-all we feel like there's no massively obvious area to panic about.

We (Dan and I) are not trained in MRIs and don't know what we're doing, we just like to compare my brain scans so that we can visualize what's happening in there. 

I would not surprised if the report comes back with bad news; we never like seeing more on an MRI, which is our perspective on the images. But I will not worry too much until I read the report, or hear from Dr L. For now, I feel relieved that the tumor appears to still be low grade, and there is no clear nodular area (that us laymen can recognize).

On a side note, my tumor area looks like a happy dog, you see has hot breath coming out of the mouth.

The image on the L is April's MRI, and the R is today's. On these images they look almost exactly the same, but with the large screens, it does appear that July's scan is much brighter, and the lines may have expanded in areas. Guess we will have to wait and see. In the meantime, it's another moving day, sweet!!!! I'm all about fun distractions. Onward and upward!

  1. Keeping everything crossed for you Jess! There is nothing you can do about it so just you and Dan get on with the fun stuff of moving house and concentrating on each other.

    As always big hugs from Scotland.
