Here it is, the good news from my latest MRI report, which the hospital gave me, even though I haven't yet had my appointment with the big cheese to get the results in person. I'm glad they did, but you'd almost hope that if there are bad things in there, they wouldn't just leave you to find this out from something written entirely in medicalese....
Anyway. Here it is:
MRI OF THE BRAIN:
November 5, 2008
Multiplanar, multisequence MR Images of the brain including post-gadolinium contrast.
There has been a previous frontal craniotomy with resection of a large meningioma within the midline bi-frontal region. There has been mild interval increase in the mild encephalomalacia and gliosis within the bilateral frontal lobes, slightly more on the left. There is enhancement of the dura within the bi-frontal regions, as well as the falx and frontal sinuses in keeping with post-surgical changes. No discreete mass is seen in this region. No definite evidence of recurrence.
The remainder of the examination is stable and unchanged compared to the previous study.
Post-surgical changes within the bi-frontal regions, without definite evidence of residual tumour.
Wooo hooooo! Although it is exactly what it said last time, word for word. Let's just hope the radiologist picked the right template :)
But anyway, from there to here sure feels great!
