Fun words from doctors notes
September 29, 2014
Here is a section I’m going to post in. These are the words from the doctors reports. Some of you might wan more technical info so here it is.
1. A bulky right hip mass with a pathological fracture, with the epicenter at the level of the acetabulum, with a significant extraosseous skeletal soft tissue component. Some of the sclerotic changes of the right ilium could be associated with ischemia or post treatment change. A clinical correlation is recommended.
And here is another fun one:
Musculoskeletal: Intensely hypermetabolic osteolytic mass lesion in the right iliac bone involving acetabulum and ischial tuberosity with mild adjacent soft tissue density. The lesion demonstrate SUV of 23.2. Two metabolically active right internal iliac lymph nodes noted measuring 2.1 x 1.2 cm with SUV of 5.9 and 1.3 x 1.2 cm with SUV of 3.9 (image 223 and 230). Other metabolically active lymph node is noted in the intramuscular plane around right hip joint measuring 1.2 x 0.9 cm with SUV of 4.8 (image 226).
Abdomen and Pelvis: Physiological distribution of tracer is noted in the liver, spleen, pancreas, adrenal glands and kidneys. The gallbladder is present. No abnormally enlarged or metabolically active abdominal lymphadenopathy.
I’m so happy that with all the technology I have been scanned with they were able to tell me “The gallbladder is present”
And from my biopsy
Core Biopsy: A(n) 14 gauge needle was used to obtain samples for surgical pathology evaluation. A total of __ samples were obtained.
If you see a blank in there it is because they left it blank.
So those were a few items that were of interest. The Bulky Right Hip Mass is what was making me limp.
That is all for now. Back to MD Anderson on Monday.
