The ‘Latest’

Well, today I get to pick up my ‘films (‘from my last MRI and PET scan) and deliver them to the surgical center miles away, wherein this coming Monday I get to have another MRI (using those as maps) to obtain yet another MRI and lymph node biopsy.

The hope is the diversity of the samples will provide a better sample with which to produce a more precise chemotherapy cocktail with which to treat the lymphoma.

Hopefully, this can be concocted and administered later this week, or early next week.

(Just out of curiosity, why do the doctor’s rely on their patients to be messengers-some of whom are weak and ill?)

While they are in there, they they will also be doing an angiogram – just because they found a tiny problem they want to check.

Things aren’t complicated enough…

    Good question. Especially since the MRI is fully digital. And if they’re giving you literal films instead of a CD or flash drive someone needs a good shaking.

    Is that YOUR angiogram, or one randomly pulled off of the net as an illustration?

    And what Old NFO said.
