RESULTS. . . .

Are in....
Went to Dr. yesterday which was good because I didn't really want to go by myself.
So lets see, I have no new tumors and it seems that the last Gamma zapped the sucker and so it's gone. That's all good.
What is not so great is that I still have a lot of swelling so that means back up on steroids, up to 2mg a day now, and I'm not thrilled about this but right now that's about all I can do for the brain swelling.
I still have blood in the original cavity, and this is due to a brain bleed I had from being on blood thinners. Seems when you have a brain tumor you can get brain bleeds and that's what happened to me...(along with the fucking blood clots)
This truly is the gift that keeps on giving.
So back to Dr.A in a couple of weeks to go over how I'm feeling medication..blah blah blah, but not another MRI as it will still show the same thing.
The only other option here for me is to have surgery where Dr. C will go in and remove the blood, which will then get rid of the swelling. He does not know why my brain is not absorbing this as it should have.
It would figure right?
So I imagine Dr. C taking a little tiny drill, drilling a whole into my head and then stick some kind of Slurpee straw or something in the hole and then just suck it out, or something along those lines....
Probably not a Slurpee straw, but if I didn't try to make fun of this I wouldn't be me right?
Do I want to do this? Fuck no, am I going to have another option?
Probably not.
So my guess, it's going to be plan b the hole in my head thing, and yet another hospital stay. I'm just guessing here, but that's kinda what I'm thinking. Not leaning towards but it may be out of my control in options dept. that is.
I just can't believe this all is happening, it's been a rough ride this round.
I'm calling it round 4 because of the 4th Gamma
I'm not trying to feel sorry for myself, but once again, more emotional due to these steroids and so it goes! I just want this over with.
Ain't this fun, see I know how to have a good time.
