I am most likely going to have an MRI sooner than Tuesday, November 13. I have had some intermittent aches on the LEFT side (totally not the side of the tumor and not in the line of the RT last winter). They have been here for a few days. The aches are not like the ones I had last year prior to the brain cancer diagnosis. That was intense pain! I told the nurse that I didn't think these aches would merit a scan sooner than the November one. She said Dr. Needles cannot explain a pain without some sort of picture. That's a fair response. I just wanted to know if nerves could be affected in this area as well? Better be safe than sorry as I am not the doctor. For the record I haven't noticed one today. Maybe it is sleep related?
I am waiting to hear from the nurse as to if St. John's was able to retrieve the April MRI from Siteman / Wash U. Dr. Needles wanted some more scans to be able to compare the "questionably minimally increased white matter" from the September scan. After hearing from her I will make my appointment. My next MRI will most likely be on a Thursday.
