Well I like it! "Unremarkable" is quickly working its way up the ranks of my favourite words. I had never before wanted to be referred to in any way as unremarkable.. my how things change. See, when you have repeated medical tests for a health concern that's the word you want to see.
Radiologists and surgeons consider a result unremarkable if that means there is nothing to report on it. ie. "Natalie, we have your brain MRI results: everything looks good, the report says each scan is unremarkable."
So phew, my brain scan is unremarkable. Hhmmm... yes, please feel free to snicker over that, I am! Brain is there apparently, but there is no hereditary calcium deposit residing within, and there appears to be no damage to the pituitary gland - yay for unremarkable. Just a dizzy broad then, surprise surprise. Thank you ipilimumab treatment for bringing to attention something we already knew. ;-)
I have had about a half and half ratio of good reports and bad test results, and I have taken note of the unremarkables...
- an ultrasound saying "unremarkable" got me out of a needle biopsy on a lymph node they've been watching in my left underarm (thank YOU Sir!)
- post-surgery notes in May stated my behaviour under anesthetic was "unremarkable" (PHEW that's a good thing! I've heard past reports of my fantastic singing and dance moves while "unconscious" LOL)
- CT scan organ descriptions: "pancreas is unremarkable" - well that's one at least! One down... a bunch more to keep an eye on.
At least that's one thing accomplished this stupid terrible week, found out my MRI results are fine. Still waiting for CT scan results from Oct. 27 but thinking no news is good news on that one. They're busy enough with my fever calls and thyroid problems... we'll save the rest for later.
