Ask you doctor why the switch and tell him about the MRI snafu. Did he see the images or just look at the report?
Still, the MRI takes 3mm slices and the tumor is larger than that.
Did anything else change besides your MRI as far as bloodwork? Was anything discussed? After all, you need to be a partner in your care and understand why the treatment was changed. And make the doctor understand if the MRI was lousy. Still, usually that impacts picture quality and they were able to see things. I have had some that were almost entirely black. Did you get a copy?
It is your option, certainly, to get other opinions.
thanks for ur care...
the doctor didnt see the images he only read the report and upon that he decided what to give me
my bloodwork is good,there is no change,neither in liver enzymes or kidney function....also there is no other symptoms indicating that there is something....even i expeccted that the doctor will give me a rest from chemotherapy becoz of my good health.....i feel improvement more than anyone else....so that makes me feel doubt about what the doctor is doing...i felt that there is some plan in his mind or protocol and he wants to apply it on me!!!!!
first he told me that the tumor in increasing in size and then he told me that it could me an inflammation or edema and we cant till.....!!!!
If there is doubt, the person to ask is the doctor, or someone in the doctor's office - is there a nurse or advocate that you can approach to ask as to why the sudden change?
Sounds like he is being conservative.
