Basically the MRI today looked the same as the MRI taken a month ago. Basically. As in, if you don't look too carefully. Or if you add in the variables like "they were taken with a different MRI device" or "the alignment was slightly different". And really, who needs details?
Ok, maybe you need details. So here's where it really stands. Today's image did look oh-so-slightly bigger than the last image.
Tomorrow Dr. B will be presenting my brain to the Tumor Board to see
what they all have to say. Hopefully they will think that it hasn't
grown significantly enough to do anything other than continue
monitoring. That said, there was a fair amount of discussion surrounding
future options. And no, they are not all that different from things
I've already considered.
Good news? Yes, at this point I
think of it as good news. As I've mentioned before, if this spot stays
basically the same size for the rest of my life, I'll have no qualms
with that. Of course, I'm guessing some of you are wondering...how does
any of this make him "stable"?!?
