Good news from Hoggy

Hi everybody

I saw the oncologist yesterday for my 3 monthly MRI scan results and the swelling in my brain has gone!. He doesnt know why it came in the first place as it was over a year since i had the stereotactic treatment. But it has gone. I had continuing 500 mcg steroids via the gp but the onc. said i didn't need to continue them as your body produces steroid if i got that right.

My April scan showed a lot of oedema but now nothing. The other side had a small tumour and that is still slightly there but now dead. I am hoping this isnt a fluke and my next 3 month scan shows the same resuts then I will be happier. News still sinking in for hubby and me but I never count my chickens yet.

Good luck to everyone else and keep optimistic you never know.

Best wishes

Hoggy
