And most enlightening they were...since they were sent to me without a signed release. Bit of a surprise, but I'm not arguing.
However, I found out that the MRI report *did* give the dimensions of my AN: 1.6 x 1.4 x 1.3. I was expecting something a lot bigger based on my ENT's statement that it was a "large" AN. I am to pick up the CD of the MRI itself tomorrow and yes, I do plan to look at myself, if only to see what the inside of my head looks like
I have no idea whether the size matters to what treatment might be best for me, but at least I know
how big it is now.
I also got a nice package of information from the ANA, including a very detaile walk through of both radiostatic surgery and microsurgery. It's very reassuring and has calmed a lot of my fears. I have appointments with Dr. McKenna in Boston on January 8th and Dr. Mason in Springfield on January 16th, and I'll be making a decision about my care after I've spoken to both of them.
I finally want to thank the kind people who e-mailed mand gave me more information - I really appreciate it! I'm sure I'll have more questions over the next few weeks....
Happy Channukah to those who celebrate it, and peace to all.
