Today i went to the RAEI to get my MRI results from Dr T.
Special mention for Amy my girlfirend who again provided well needed support and for Dr T who as usual was quick to give me an appointment when other Doctors were striking.
Dr T started off by confirming that the MRI scan’s showed a 12-14mm macroadonema on the pituitary gland which is at the base of the brain.
The scan’showed it as a sort of squashed circle around the gland which spiked up over to the right but away from the optic nerve which he had mentioned weeks earlier. He said that he still didn’t have the growth hormone test results back in but he suspected that i had the tumour alongside the condition known as Acromegaly.
Dr T was really great and delivered the news in an appropriate manner.
He went on to tell me that he would refer me to Professor T from Christies in Manchester and that he would do this quiet quickly.
In addition he said that he would also arrange for a Glucose tolerance test at the Planned Investigation Unit within the next few days and that this was a stress test to see how my body responded to physical stress but researching this further i read that it was also a typical acromegaly test.
