Such an amazing stay and full-body workup.
Today, I had an MRI and got results from my smell test.
I have an underdeveloped ‘smell knob’ (unsure what that is in proper English) and lines around it in my brain are shorter.
There are 5 levels: People typically start at level 1 and as they age can go 2, 3, 4, 5 (no smell/severe) or remain the same or lose just some sense (1 to a 2).
I am a 3. The doctor said it is a possibility to move to a 4, as I was so close, by 40 and maybe 5 by 50. We’re going to check again in a year to see if smell fails further (though a year should stay the same, but if it does decrease, it shows acceleration and could lose it all by 35).
Just good to know that one day I’ll wake up earlier than most and not smell the roses as it’s not treatable or curable.
