Good News from Mayo Clinic

Well, we arrived safely at Mayo and saw the Neurologist. I LOVE HIM!!! He was very upfront with us, answered every question we had, and has a lot of the same philosophy as John and I. I think all the turmoil with the previous ones was so that we could finally find someone we are completely comfortable with.

Ok, ok... so what did they say? Well, there was definitely change in the June MRI and there is a good possibility of it in the October MRI. However, we are still in the 6 - 18 month window that changes occur post radiation and any changes are not significant at this time. So, we will have another MRI in Springfield at the 8 week mark and we will continue working with the doctors at Mayo to determine the best path of treatment. Should any of the future MRIs show change, I will most likely be starting Temodar but he doesn't feel it is to my benefit to start it at this time.

For those that have no idea what I'm talking about, they do not believe it is anything to be concerned about at this time and therefore we will continue to watch it. This is good news!!!

Love ya all and huggles from Minnesota!

  2. Hi Amy, I tried to write before but my comment just disappeared.
    I am so happy to hear that you finally received some good news and found a good doctor:) I can only imagine what a relief that was.
    And I am sorry for not writing earlier and for not writing a reply to your comment on my blog. I have not even been talking much for the last weeks since I don't want to spread my negative thoughts into my words. I feel better now and your comment did help. Thank you!!
    You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers daily.
