:D Good news,

There was only 1 brain met and it was treated by the gamma knife to

be followed by wholehead radiation starting next Wednesday. The

radiologist said I would be around for sometime. This was very treatable.

I felt marvelous. Other than a sore head I'm up and about and feel

good. While they did the gamma knife surgery I had them put on my

polka and waltz tapes. They thought it was cool. Well I have a real

whole in my head and four spots where they had to put a shield so I

guess you could say I'm an airhead.

God Bless All,

Marsha

Hi Marsha....that is GREAT news!!! We all need a little sunshine in our lives at one time or another. My husband was dx with NSCLC 11/02. So far he has done wonderful. I really feel the medical community is right on the verge of finding a cure for this monster.

May God bless you and your family.

Just curious,

why do they choose to do gamma knife on some people and not on others? I know it must depend on the number and size of met(s) and the type of L/C I guess? My dad only has one met and Rad. Onc is giving him whole brain Rad. 1st and Gamma Knife later if anything comes back...?

ANYway, I AM SO HAPPY THAT IT ALL WENT WELL FOR YOU and that you are feeling well! It's good to be an airhead!

((HUGS))
