Tracey and I have just returned from an MRI scan in Tamworth. We have had a look at the scans and we feel happy with what we are seeing. Let us share a comparison with you.
Here is a scan that was taken just before the first dose of Avastin, when things were getting very bad in terms of seizures and serious loss of mobility.
Again, this is not a cure and is not going to make the tumour go away. We also realise that the current efficacy of the Avastin will not last indefinitely. However, it is doing what we had hoped it would - giving me time that I would otherwise not have had, and making a significant improvement to our day-to-day lives.
I will, of course, do all in my power to boost its effectiveness with natural anti-angiogenesis foods, and while there is no seizure activity, do as much rewiring as possible of other parts of my brain through physiotherapy to restore movement and co-ordination in my right hand, arm and leg.
Such results can only encourage us to fight on with everything we have!
