MRI Reading

Submitted by katman on Sat, 2006-02-04 10:22

Like Beethoven, MRIs are even better the second time.  With the 1st MRI from Aug, 2002 missing (!), the local radiologist read the  films 2 through 5 and gave a verdict of overall improvement.  We will attempt to find the mysterious missing 1st film because it IS 1st and probably worst, having been taken because I was having so much trouble.  However,  3 through 5  were all done after beginning abx Sept, 2004.   No. 2 was Jan 2004 before starting abx, then Jan 2005, then June 2005, and finally Jan. 2006.   No new lesions and the existent ones are not as bright, especially in the latest.  I have no intention of sitting and waiting a probable year for the next but to get up every morning possible and do whatever needs doing at an ever-increasing speed.  Within reason, of coiurse! 


 "No new lesions and the existent ones are not as bright, especially in the latest."  Well, that sounds like it could have been my radiologist! (Except that a few small ones around the edge had actually vanished.) I'm not sure that I want another one, because I always get so worried before hand.  I think, like you, I will just carry on getting up every morning and continue doing things at an ever increasing speed.....Sarah
Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

 Great news Rica. We have to get these into image files somehow!
