Re: MRI for recurrent GBM
I am so sorry we meet under these circumstances, but glad to see you posting.
I am by no means at all a medical person and read the report strictly with an eye to language. What I gather is that, compared to the original MRI, they can see where the first surgery was done and that the glioblastoma has spread onward from there, invading some other areas of white matter ( I am assuming that is brain matter?) It says there are new abnormalities surrounding the cavity area from the the first surgery meaning it has started moving outward. It also seems like there is an increased blood flow, which is probably not good as this can feed the cancer.
I know this is tremendously frightening to deal with. I don't think any layman is really going to be able to offer you too much. Perhaps you need to convey your thoughts to the doctor. I am sure he felt he was in some way protecting you, but I think if you explain to him how heavily this is weighing on you, he might take the time to give you the details you seek.
Love Mom up. :-) That is what the very most important thing is right now.
Wishing you peace
