ill_rob Posted January 13, 2009 Share Posted January 13, 2009 Hi All, Had 2 scans done on the 9th (Head and Chest) and received a call from my Oncologist saying my chest scan looked great but some small spots showed on the head scan. Not able to sleep that night I called my Radiation Oncologist and set up an appointment the next morning. He was very optimistic about the treatment (Gamma Knife) and outcome (he preformed my chest and PCI) due to the fact that I have responded well to radiation before and that my former tumor in the chest is still quiet. We scheduled an MRI and made an appointment to see the neurosurgeon for consultation. After reviewing my MRI (found a few more spots), The neurosurgeon is also very optimistic about the surgery and outcome. The surgery is scheduled for the 16th. I have gone through every emotion possible during the last few days but I have to believe in the optimism of my doctors that everything will turnout alright. With this disease you can not let your guard down for a minute or it will come back to bite you. Thanks for listening -rob Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
