...brain cancer starts to knock me back down.
MRI wasn't the best news. If you recall my worrisome post in early
October, there was something discovered post-surgery. That "something"
looked slightly larger today, increasing concern that there might be yet
another recurrence. Internally it produced a level of frustration I
haven't felt since my battle with Kaiser. How could there be a tumor
visible in the pre-surgery MRI that wasn't detected soon enough to be removed during surgery?
Where was the communication between the surgeons, the oncologists, and
the radiation team? Most frustrating is that just as I was starting to
get back into the life I love, after playing my first ultimate game,
starting to exercise, and seeing the swelling finally disappear
permanently; after basically one day of normalcy, it looks like I might be set back to Square 1.
I am still trying to get second opinions from Cedars-Sinai.
Unfortunately, at UCSF Dr. Berger is awfully difficult to reach, and the
timing couldn't have been worse as everyone seems to be out right now.
Hopefully I will get some opinions as to whether this is "something" to
continue watching or to extract immediately. Either way, I think it's
time to start looking for the next treatment, since the others have all
worked so well.
