I measured the segment 6 spot and it looked .9 cm to me when you use the auto magnification. If you increase the magnification one notch up, it adjusts to 1.3 or so. The radiologist at MGH could have had it set at the lower magnification or the radiologist at MSK could have had it set at the next notch up!
I guess I won't ever get to the bottom of it, not being present for the reads and there being no record of what magnification setting the reads were made on. Oh well!
mpbser wrote:So, yesterday was the big pre-surgery day with CT, MRI, labs, echo, EKG, and appointments with Kemeny and D’Angelica. The appointment with D’Angelica went well. He had had a chance to look at the MRI which showed the lone new met to be “unchanged” according to him. He said that if he thinks that it looks possibly benign when he is in there, he will do a rapid biopsy before moving forward because obviously we don’t want a pump in that case. At this point, my husband is now not even sure if he wants it in any case. A couple reasons for this. First, the MRI actually notes that the suspicious spot actually decreased in size by 2mm. 1.3 cm to 1.1 cm. I added some super powerful supplements to his regime a few weeks ago. Very glad they work but now their efficacy is impeding on what were firm plans to get the pump. Almost as importantly (to my husband), Dr. Kemeny showed her true colors to us last night. She was extraordinarily abrasive, confrontational, and argumentative. My husband now firmly despises her. I am a very clinical thinker and put my feelings aside when it comes to these matters, but he can’t so much. We have until the day before the surgery to decide. The upcoming week sure will be one of very deep contemplation.

radnyc, I added chlorrella, spirulina, chlorophyllin, n-acecytel-carnitine (sp?), dandelion root extract, selenium, resveratrol, and quercetin to his already long list that I upped to full dosage. I also started buying a higher quality curcumin extract that has high rate of bioavailability.
