MRI Results
« on: December 03, 2014, 03:39:33 pm »

I had an MRI wo/w contrast on Monday because after my US many small lesions were noted on my liver. This was of great concern because all I could think about was the big C, and I don't mean HepC.
The phone rang this morning at 8am and I saw on caller ID that it was my hospital. I freaked out because I figured it must be bad since they were calling before my Monday appointment.
As it turned out all the lesions are regenerative nodules and my grading was changed from a solid F4 to a F3-F4. It is only a small improvement but I am thrilled. Also, there were no masses or tumors note anywhere in my abdominal area. I got as emotional as I did when I found out that I was approved for off label use of S&O. I know that men aren't suppose to cry, but it happens.
Now I have to successfully clear the SVR12 hurdle on Monday.
