That must have been a hard situation.. Yes they too try to MRI me... but I stubbornly refuse and only agree to the Ultrasound, due to the radiation being like 300 or more X-rays in one sitting.
I imagine that MRI would have cause you concern.
I guess when it came to preserving your other organs it was the choice you were faced with.
It is hard and can be disheartening when all attempts seem to be getting nowhere slowly.
But I look at it this way: Its my test from The Creator. How will I react? am I going to be patient and remain steadfast... or am I going to throw in the towel and forget about being grateful for all the other blessings I have been bestowed with... And I am of the same school of thought as the Old Granny that Archus reported who died with the cyst that weren't bothering her. I totally release this situation to my Creator. He chose this circumstance for me and He alone will sustain me through it. In Him I rely and put all my trust...
And fasting just concretes that more into my heart...
And despite feeling like a receiving annorexic who's body still rejects almost all food I put into it - lol.... I can't wait to back some lean muscle mass and then go back into my intermittent fasting on a perm basis.... AND YES! more longer fasts planned as soon as I can reach a normal weight!!
But I totally relate to your story and my heart goes out to you!
I say keep doing the fasting - Modern man hasn't yet made all the measuring instruments and apparatus BUT I KNOW we are benefitting more that we can even measure from fasting...
