No evidence for recurrent tumor

The September 2012 MRI showed no evidence of cancer just normal scarring.  My oncologist, Dr. Needles was pleased as the radiologist compared the scan to three previous ones.  3/8/2012, 8/17/2010 & 9/9/2009.  And I quote from the report... "Status post right frontal partial lobectomy.  There is no evidence for recurrent or residual tumor.  No acute intracranial process."

All in all I am relieved yes to hear this news.  Of course!  The oncologist would like for me to return in 6 months for another check up / MRI.  He is pro active & I appreciate that.  I just better remember my blood work papers the next time as I usually bring it with me to the MRI test so I don't have to be sticked twice in one week.  They take the blood work then put in the contrast during MRI. 

I hope to post more thoughts later...

So thankful to once again be reminded of God's faithful touch and healing in your life. It's hard to believe that it has been 5 years since I had you in my CBS core group. Enjoy the fall with your boys. Love, Judy
