Everything we do here is a give and take.. there’s risks with any treatment or surgery, there’s risks with not doing anything, etc. etc. three in one week is pretty excessive, but beyond that we’ve just got to deal with whatever comes down the pipe. Is gandolinium worse than your AN? Who knows? Like my doctor told me when I started asking what option was best for me: “well, is it going to grow”? Who knows. AN’s seem to be a real place for somebody to turn into a hypochondriac... just so amany choices and options, you just have to roll the dice with what you know and do the best you can, then hope and pray for the best.
