Welcome Gtmochi - Know that you are in good hands at Stanford and everyone there will take good care of you. You have made a great choice. Are you seeing Chang? Do you know how many fractions they are planning? Make it a vacation if you can and it will be over in no time. Don't think twice, it's alright!
Hello again, Stella - Yes, they used contrast during the MRI and I'm fairly certain it was gadolinium. I was a little surprised about the two years but it sounds like for stable tumors the doubling interval (6 months, 1yr, 2yrs, 4yrs) is somewhat common? I'm not sure.
