we are going to have to run a MRI, Specifically a functional MRI
Whats the difference?
It's one of the most effective ways to detect a Giolma
Well a functional MRI specifically Maps brain activity by evaluating the structures of the brain and detecting changes in blood flow
What are the results doc?
Josiah you may want to sit down
OMG I'M GOING TO DIE
Josiah no no you are very lucky we caught this very early it's a low grade giloma like I suspected and it's very treatable
Most low grade gliomas are both highly treatable and highly curable they have a cure rate of about 90 percent. If the glioma would have progressed to stage 3 your survival rate would have dropped below 25%
So what are we waiting for how can I feel healthy again!
Since the tumor is small and easy to separate from surrounding healthy brain tissue, it makes surgical removal possible. I’m also going to prescribe steroids to reduce swelling and relieve pressure on any affected areas of the brain.
You will also have to go through physical and occupational therapy to limit the post operative side effects
OMG Thank you so much Doc you saved my life I couldn't be more grateful!!
