Mri tomo

I have been sent to have an MRI by my consultant to see how badly my bowel is involved. I see him a few weeks back, he told me although inwas diagnosed with stage 4 by the man who done my lap he said i was more of a grade 1 to 2 as he can still see my organs that are affected? This has confused me massivly as for the last 6 weeks ive been in sheer panic. We had a lovely 2 week holiday and my period came today. So much for the relax on hols itl happen. I fainted at work and in in agony. Just needed a little vent and some hope of falling pregnant with this cruel disease :(

Is the second person a specialist in Endo and was the first? A lesss severe diagnosis having had the MRI extra data would seem to be good news?


Yeh ive been refered to an endo consultant who sent me for the mri, but the diagnostic lap surgeon told me stage 4 but then the endo surgeon told me grade 1 to 2 .. is stage and grade the same thing im totally confused!
