MRI done

And why did I have an MRI of my head?

Balance issues (for which I went to physical therapy), a bit of trembling, hard time finding words, frustration - all related to sleep deprivation.

Sleep deprivation - Sleeping 1/2 hour at a time for months, extending to 1 hour at a time, and now, getting up 1-3 times a night. Napping during the day. No restorative sleep. All related to having to get up to go to the bathroom.

Frequency - Related to the allergy to mitomycin and the damage done to the bladder, with left over strands and tissue still hanging out.

Allergy - Requiring a second surgery August 27 to remove inflammation related to allergy to mitomycin. The first consideration of a possible allergy wasn't mentioned until July 30.

Mitomycin - Instilled post TURBT on June 18.

All of the goofy complications could have been possibly minimized had the allergy been discovered sooner. But Dr. Burgess didn't take me seriously at the time.

Now I wait.
