marym Posted June 25, 2006 Share Posted June 25, 2006 Now I am faced with another dilemma. My doctors want to perform radio surgery using the Novalis system. This does require the halo. If I were to go elsewhere, it's possible I could have the sme care using the cyber knife and not requiring the halo. This elsewhere would be at least 3 hours from home. I do like and have confidence in my doctors here.So should I go with their recommendations? The neurosurgeon said that they are beginning the no halo approach (although I am not sure if it's new equipment), but that my <1mm mets are not a candidate. I'm leaning towards staying where I am - just because I have a team of doctors, all of whom have been really good. The only thing I hate about the halo is the initial shots of anesthesia. There is no pain after that. Have any of you had to make a similar decision? Help!! Mary Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
