Hi All,

Just recd news that my MRI showed a new brain met. Probably will have stereotactic radiation, but I'm waiting to hear.

I have been doing so well - and was really surprised at the finding. I have no symptoms, and feel great.

I'm dreading another treatment of the radiation just because of the pain of screwing on the head contraption. I know some places do not use the haed gear. Anyone have stereotactic radiation without the head gear?

Yes, Mary. The first time mom had SRS she had the "halo" with screws (she called it the crown of thorns), but the second time, they did not have to use it or any screws. Rather, she had a mask that resembled the one she had from WBR. I would definitely ask bc it is possbile. Good luck with everything. Glad you are feeling well!
