MRI results

Hey ladies.... I got my MRI results today! Seems as though.....I am STILL CANCER FREE!!!!! Whew! My Dr said that the test read abnormal for my hip and that I have severe osteoarthritis. He also said he saw some radiation damage but this is normal with the amount of radiation I received. He wrote me a letter personally to tell me that my hip was "abnormal" but that there was " NO CANCER and my series of pictures for this scan was totally clear for a recurrance" "good news"~~~he said.............He mentioned the damage caused for rads and that he expected to eventually see some in the pelvis area. I asked to be referred to an orthapedic surgeon for further assessmant of my hip and for some PAIN MEDS~~~ Ones that keep the semi rollin'...LOL! I missed his call back but will call tomorrow to see if and when I get to see a specialist for my leg and hip.

My question~~~~ Are MRIs good at detectinng recurrance?? Guess I am just nervous still.....

Re: MRI results

Hi there Jabberjawz
Great news about the MRI!
There is no test that is 100% at detecting recurrences HOWEVER this MRI has shown a reason for your pain, which I think should be extremely reassuring.
There are no narcotics that do not slow down semi's somewhat. HOWEVER you can work around that with metamucil, or prunes etc.....or the rather large list of suggestions given when you posted about the semi blocking the motorway.
The tincture of time is the most reassuring, as the way numbers go, as time goes on your chances of complete cure improve.
I hope you can at least be LESS nervous.

Re: MRI results

Brilliant news! As for the MRI versus other tests, I think it depends on which test gives the best image of the areas in question rather than it being that one is best for cancer specifically. And, I think an MRI is the preferred test for structural issues (spines, hips, etc.). The doc found something that clearly can be causing your pain (OA) and didn't see anything else that would be a red flag.

Now, get out there and enjoy the season!

Re: MRI results

Thank ya gals!! I feel better now that I have a SURE source to my pain. The standard xray alone just wasn't enough reassurance for me. I wanted to know if there was mets somewhere.....thus the further testing. I feel better knowing that he didn't see any cancer in there. The first MRI I had prior to treatment is what detected the spread to my parametrium....thus a stage 2b. I was thought to be a stage 1b2 before all of my scans, but then that changed. I am getting closer to my 2 year mark~~~ CAN NOT WAIT!!!

Re: MRI results

So then Jabber.....
The MRI in you detected a lot, and right now does not see anything, so you can think of it as a very good test.
I sure know how you feel, I am anxious for my one year Mark.
I feel for you...

Re: MRI results

WHen you see the orthopedic surgeon, ask if they do Synvisc in the hip. It is an injection (used more commonly in the knee) that more or less adds a new surface to the joint, and often can last for a few years,
It extends the life of the joint and prolongs the time you would need a total joint replacement.
It is used a lot in Canada.
