MRI/MRS results


Our MRI/MRS imaging results and follow-up visit to Dr. Andrews, my neurosurgeon, Dr. Andrews, yesterday did not quite end up like we wanted but it did confirm some symptoms that I have been having. The images attached reveal that the tumor mass since early December has grown significantly and Dr. Andrews is recommending immediate surgical removal. it explains the frequent headaches and, tremors in my left hand and left side. As of yesterday, I am scheduled for surgery at Jefferson on Thursday, Jan 29, no time, yet.
