I got the report on my MRI from yesterday and it reads as follows:
"Pre-contrast scans demonstrate a diminutive postmenopausal uterus tilted to the let of midline. There is no evidence for a separate pelvic mass. Specifically, the vaginal apex is unremarkable. Neither ovary is identified with confidence. No separate adnexal mass is present. Mild nonspecific free pelvic fluid is present. There is no evidence of adenopathy.
Post-contrast scans demonstrate nonspecific enhancement of the superior aspect of the vagina, again, without obvious mass. No other abnormalities are present.
IMPRESSION: Nonspecific enhancement of vaginal apex matching findings on recent PET scan. As stated on PET scan report, these findings may be due to inflammation since no mass is detected in this area. Recommend clinical correlation."
So, this seems like good news, but still somewhat inconclusive as to what is causing this. I don't know how they determine exactly what it is at this point, so I am going with the inflammation theory. My gyno's nurse called me today to give me the results and she has not asked me to make another appt.--I just need to see her for my yearly. Again, having the PET scan in early August may be what tells the real story, as PET results can be compared between May and August scans. I SO hope it goes away before August!
Thank you all for your words of support and encouragement and the prayers. I appreciate it so very, very much!
