Thank you for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com.

I have read the detailed MRI brain report sent by you. I would like to reassure you that these are totally normal MRI findings. The operation done for your brain tumor earlier has been successful, and there is no recurrence of the tumor.

Also, the shunt tube placed to drain the extra brain fluid is working pretty well.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any follow-up queries.

Best wishes,
