MRI Results

by on July 14, 2009

The MRI results show that the original tumor is notably smaller and no new tumors have been found.  He reiterated the good results from the Pet-CT scan of her head and chest.  No additional Cyberknife sessions are necessary at this time.  The Doctor performed a neurological test and Satomi passed just fine.

That’s the best news we’ve had in a long time.

Ironically, Satomi’s dizziness and fatigue has worsened and is debilitating.  She gets headaches and her eyesight has degraded.  The doctors says it’s due to the brain aggravation from the original operation and the Cyberknife.  The Decadron is a necessary evil until it all passes.  Satomi needs to be patient; It wasn’t that long ago that she had a major brain operation.  She is going to try another type of medication so we’ll see how it goes.  Hopefully we can taper off of the Decadron as soon as possible.

We’re scheduled for a new set of MRI’s in 3 months.  Now it’s all about getting through the symptoms.

Today was a good day.
