Gamma knife procedure


Recommended Posts

Well, had the gamma knife procedure done yesterday to the left temporal lobe of my brain. My lesion had grown from 3mm to the size of a pea but surgeon said it was still small and an 18 minute treatment should do the trick. I had a plastic mesh mask molded to my face. That was a little scary as I couldn’t open my eyes or have much movement with my mouth. I think anxiety got a hold of me for a bit but I made it through. I asked if they were going to sedate me but they said no. Glad it is over and hope that it does fry the lesion. I have a follow up mri in Jan and see the surgeon.
