I received a copy of the radiologist's report on my MRI today and it read in part, 'The appearence is nonspecific. This may be form tiny multiculated pancreatic cysts with hemorrhagic component or microcystic adenoma with some hemorrhagic component. The lack of enhancement favors a benign origin rather than malignant process, however, I still cannot exclude slow growing malignant process. I would request close 3 month followup to determine stability'
My daughter also spoke to her oncologist in Virginia today and showed her the films of my MRI. Her opinion was that these are benign cysts and also some scarring because my diabetes levels were over 600 before I got smart and started insulin. Of course, she told her to make sure I get to my appointment with Dr. Ellison in Columbus on the second, and I will be doing that.
I know this isn't a certain diagnosis at this point, but at least I was about to take a breath between now and the appointment with Dr. Ellison. I was turning blue from holding my breath for the last three weeks. (lol)
I sure wish everyone here could get promising tests back like this one. Much
love to you all
