8 months since radiosurgery - MRI result

I can hardly believe that it is over a year since diagnosis and eight months since the six weeks of FSRT treatment finished. My first follow-up MRI from 29th March shows no changes at all, nothing, zilch, nada ......

No growth is GOOD NEWS.

But no sign of shrinkage or tissue death seems to me to be less encouraging as this surely means that my symptoms will continue. At least for the time being.

I have yet to see or speak to my neurologist and/or oncologist ......... although I am presuming that an appointment will be sent in due course. But further discussion does seem pretty pointless.

It is as it is and no amount of talking is going to change anything - "what can't be cured must be endured" as the saying goes!

But just at the moment I am a bit tired of putting a brave face on.
