MRI and eyes

Today, I had a head MRI, saw my radiation oncologist and saw a retina specialist.

Dr Henderson informed me that my brain lesions continue to be stable.  That's a very good thing and I am not experiencing any new neurological symptoms.  I will go back in October for another MRI.  Dr H wants to be aware of changes in the lesions rather than wait for new symptoms.

This afternoon, I visited Dr Phan - a retina specialist.  Dr Zlioba had recommended that I see a retina specialist to evaluate what he called floaters.  She confirmed the floaters in both eye and did a pretty complete physical evaluation of my eyes.  She indicated that the current floaters are not causing any issues with my retinas.  I will also go back to see her in October for a re-check.
