I have had double vision since September, headaches have been added to the mix also. I needed to stop working because I am in pain and vision problems. First MRI of brain showed nothing (there is brain matter!) second MRI of orbit showed scar tissue. Cancer surgeon thought he saw a mass not scar tissue, sent to opthamologist--MRI was not available yet. Biopsy was supposed to be scheduled with both doctors. PET scan showed nothing--oh, hot spot in tonsil area. Next week I will have a biopsy with the opthamologist. I will be under general, 1 1/2 hour proceedure and a week recovery. Post op Nov. 2nd. Hopefully something will be found to help guide the way. Oh, by the way, previous two cancers did not show up on PET.
Taking it day by day.
