Why would neurosurgeon do brain MRI scan on 5th dec and not return any results for the past 7 weeks and now request the patient 2 go back for another 1?

I have high calcium levels, brain MRI showed spots in white matter, pain on right side abdomin. Dr mentioned aphasia-can all these be realted? Im 41
