mri update


I just realized I forgot to update with my heart MRI results.

The good news is that my heart is functioning at the same level it was pre-chemotherapy.
Chemo is known to weaken hearts, so this is good.

The bad news is that my ejection function is still low and I also have left ventricular noncompaction.
I have been referred to a cardiologist, whom I will see at some point after surgery.

I don't really know what any of these means and I'm trying not to google.

My oncologist just said it's not a huge concern right now but may cause me problems when I'm older.

The one time I googled it, it brought up two sudden deaths by noncompaction.
Gotta love Google....or not. :)

For now, I'm going to stay focused on kicking cancer. If I can do this, anything is possible.

Make it a great day!


  1. Yes, Google can be evil sometimes... it's so hard to stay away from though! Try your best to do what you said and focus on kicking cancer's ass. Go girl.

  2. Google is your friend....sometimes...other times not so much! =(
