Whew.
While I don't get to talk to the neurosurgeon until the end of the month, they released my MRI results today, and the tumorbean is exactly the same size it was in August.

I am profoundly relieved, because I just can't figure out how I would have managed the months of surgery recovery right now.

(For those of you just tuning in, it's a benign tumor, so even though the neurosurgeon is gung-ho about cutting it out, surgery is not necessarily called for.)

this is delightful news!

Yay for benign!

So glad to hear this!

Good medical news is very good news indeed.

Wooo!

At one point you were concerned about backpain - where are you now with that?

The discs at L4 and L5 are pretty smushed, but I'm guessing that the hernia/slip fixed itself, because while I wake up stiff every day, I'm not in constant pain. I'm mostly attributing that to ALL THE YOGA. I cannot thank you enough for the Iyengar recommendation. I have also been working a lot on my core and back muscles, which I think is helping too.
