Hi Joan, I second @alamogal635's sentiment. It is really good to hear from you. I can't imagine having pneumonia on top of everything else. I'm glad that you're well enough now to get to the appointment for the MRI. Those tests also come with a strong dose of anxiety and with the added brain MRI the addition of the unknown. Perhaps @shaila1902 and @lady1lake can share a bit about what to expect with a brain MRI.

@sakota, how is your energy these days?

Hello @sakota
I have had several brain MRIs in the past 2 years since the mets were discovered in April 2017-do it every 3 months. Its very simple and not at all bothersome. In fact if small tumours show up they are easily controlled with the cyber knife treatment which is completely painless (I have done it twice). No side effects and feeling good.
I feel its better to know while the tumours are small as there are so many treatment options now.
Wish you all the best for your tests

Hey Joan- Good morning. I hope that you are well away from pneumonia by now! Are you feeling better? What a tough time you must have had. Did you need oxygen at all? I've had a brain MRI- I was terribly anxious but had the techs cover my head with a light scarf and it made all the difference in the world for me. How did you do?

(nancy / shortshot) Good Saturday June 15 Morning. I finally found my way back here, Thank you Colleen! Have been having a bunch of urine infections for the past four or so months along with every thing else. Had to go to emergency Wednesday with horrible belly/bladder pain. Had been on medicine for the past seven days and found out the bug I had was a drug resistant bug. The doc changed the medicine and also gave me a drug to numb my bladder. Primary doc is sending me to a urologist to see what if whatever is causing all this. I'm tired of all of it. Also am going to physical therapy, to help me get back to walking. Didn't have only two weeks of PT after breaking my left hip. So that's what has been going on for me… Such fun! Everyone have a great day… Nancy
