Hi yes in 2014 and they couldn’t find anything from a mri scan
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 5 days ago.

Do you have a recent report?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
No. But I had a medical examination by my doctor who is fully aware of my status
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Examination was 4 weeks ago
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 5 days ago.

Ok.

Expert:  Dr Kay replied 5 days ago.

Basically,they should do a fresh MRI . However, you wont be allowed to drive in case it has revoked. So ,what are your thoughts and concerns?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
My concern is what could I have to worry about if I’m unable to drive trucks is there a possibility it could come back or if I could die as a result of the tumour
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Because I was never informed of any danger of that
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 5 days ago.
Well , these rumours are generally slow growing do normally you can not die of them . But definitely it depends which area they are involving and what symptoms they are causing that can be different . Why they did not thought about removing them ?
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
The tumour was 90% removed and it was on the central brain stem. I have no other problems since
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
I believe it was in the area of Murray
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 5 days ago.
Thats good . I think then nothing to worry .Do you have any new symptoms? They can think about doing a new MRI that will show any changes.
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
No symptoms at all
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 5 days ago.

Thats lovely.

Expert:  Dr Kay replied 5 days ago.

I think then they should set you free after doing one MRI.

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Lol well thank you for your advice I will put it to my doctor and hopefully I will be happy again.
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 5 days ago.

:) Yes, definitely.
