Well, I saw Dr. Rigamonti today at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. He reviewed my history, asked why I got the CT scan in the first place (saw an opthomologist for blurry vision, who recommended it), and looked at the CT/MRI report and films. Whatever they saw that was around 3mm X 8mm is, in Dr. Rigamonti's opinion, a vein. He recommended another MRI, maybe in a year. At the end, he said that it looked very benign. Naturally I'm very relieved, even though I fear now that my membership with ANA is in jeopardy
. Does anyone think I should get a second opinion, just for the sake of being thorough/safe? I keep heariing about how House Ear Institute reviews films for free, and I do have the films in my possession. Or should I just count my lucky stars and move on? Thanks all! I have to say, this is the most helpful, pleasant, and addicting forum I've ever been on.
(oh, and in case you're wondering, the 'rat' part does mean and I have and love pet rats
