As Dr. Adams walked into the exam room this afternoon, he said that Erin’s MRI (taken last Tuesday, March 25, 2014) was clear and there was no evidence of cancer. (Her previous MRI was 8 months ago on July 25th.) He says hers is a most unusual case. He said it could be that her immune system has learned to fight the cancer. MRIs give false positives, but not false negatives.
As for the double vision and nausea, he said that these are neurological problems outside of his realm of expertize and that she should see a neurolgoist. We had barely walked in the door at home when the phone rang. it was Dr. Lallana’s office calling to schedule an appt. He is the neuro-oncologist whom Erin saw when he first came to Kaiser in Nov. 2011. Erin is scheduled to see him tomorrow at 2 pm.
Dr. Adams is retiring the end of May, so Erin will see him for the last time in early May. We will miss him!
