Hi! I met with my neurosurgeon and neurooncologist today. They both were very happy with the results of last week's MRI; the scans, which evidently were done in thinner slices than previously so to show more detail, showed that my brain was free of active mets (metastatic tumors). What a relief.
I told the doctors about the incessant fatigue and low-grade nausea I've been experiencing since late October. They said it's probably related to three things: the after-effects of the whole brain radiation, the medications I'm taking, and the cancer itself. The neurooncologist recommended that I try taking a drug they normally give people with narcolepsy. He thinks it might take away some of the fatigue. That would be nice. I missed Aubrey's Christmas concert last week because I was sick, and I missed Regan and Jack's concert tonight because I'm so tired. All I have to do is check with the doctor who is administering the antiCTLA-4 clinical trial to make sure this other drug won't interfere with the trial.
That's all there is to report from my doctor visits today.
