Below is the report from my last MRI that involved 2 areas of my spine. These areas were radiated several weeks ago. You can certainly read the report, and if you're medical, you'll probably understand it. But basically it says that the areas in my spine that were scanned....that in some of the areas the cancerous lesions completely went away. And in one area, they were diminished. So although there is one part of my spine that still has the cancer, the radiation did make the area smaller, and it certainly hasn't grown. And in another area it completely went away. A huge praise to God for that.
Indication Leptomeningeal metastasis from breast cancer
The small enhancing nodular lesions noted along the root of the cauda equine are no longer present. In addition, the small focus of nodular enhancement in the conus medullaris at the T12 level has slightly decreased in size and no longer enhances. No evidence of new leptomeningeal metastatic disease.
The lumbar vertebral bodies and interspaces are normal. No spinal or foraminal stenosis. Normal disk height and T2 signal. The facets are normal. The paraspinal loft tissues are normal. No evidence of skeletal metastasis.
Small focus of T2 signal hyperintensity in the conus at the T12 level has diminished in size since 10/8/2008 and no longer enhances.
Resolution of the previously demonstrated enhancing nodules along the roots of cauda equina.
Findings are consistent with improvement of the patient’s known leptomeningeal metastatic disease.
The lumbar spine is otherwise normal.
Now certainly you understood all that...right? Apparently, the cancer can still regrow in those areas, but I'm going to trust in the Lord and just know that He has healed me in those areas and I'm not going to worry about them anymore.
What do ye imagine against the Lord? He will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
