The Tumors Are Shrinking!!!!!

Posted Apr 02 2010 5:20pm
My MRI showed that the two tumors that grew in last year that was the reason for the radiation treatment have actually shrunk because of the radiation treatment!  That doesn't always happen, especially with meningiomas, cancer yes, meningiomas, no.  Usually they just remain stable, like the ones we gamma knifed, but these are actually shrinking!  Its awesome!!!!!  I am so relieved!  Maybe now I will actually be able to get some sleep!  There is still some swelling, but hopefully that will start to subside now.  My hair is growing back so the time frame is about right for the side effects to wane.

As far as the pressure behind my eye, the doc double checked the scan with the radiologist and there was nothing visible to cause it.  I think it might be from the one supplement I've been taking to try to sleep.  I will stop taking it.

Someone showed up to fix my upstairs toilet this morning before I left for my doctor's appointment too, so I did have a very good day!  I get to sleep in my bed tonight!  And since I know the tumors are shrinking I am hoping to actually get some real sleep!
