SharKats Posted October 26, 2004 Share Posted October 26, 2004 If this has been discussed before - PLEASE forgive me. I would just like to know how many of you have had gamma knife surgery for brain mets. Don is the one who brought this up to me and since whole brain radiation was discussesd briefly with my 2nd opinion onc, I am anxious to know if this is relatively common with brain mets or if most onc's are saying WBR. I do NOT want the side effects caused by WBR and from the info shown on Memorial Hermann's web site, this seems to be a much more preferable way to go if the chemo doesn't shrink the brain tumors. I was truly excited to know there was an "out" and WBR was NOT my only option. Sure would like to know if anyone has had it done and their experience with the procedure.
