Today Austin and I went to Gainesville Fl., saw his neurosurgeon and got the official report of his last MRI. (after radiation and first bout of chemo) The findings are: the current examination demonstrates a heterogenoeous mass centered within the left mesial temporal/occipital lobes with dimensions of roughly that seen on the prior study. Perhaps the superior most portion of the tumor has decreased in size. One of the cysts has peripheral enchancement. There is increased T2 signal within the left splenium of the corpus callosum. There is effacement of the left atrium. There is no ventriculomegaly.There is no obvious subependymal or leptomeningeal spread of tumor. The remainder of the exam is unremarkable. what does all of this mean???

that's an ear full! did you get an opportunity to discuss all that with the doctor? you're gonna need a good medical dictionary or a trusted individual in the medical field, or at least i would. i'd have to look it up word by word and then i'm not sure i'd understand it.
