Hi to all my AN Friends ---
Sorry, I have been gone for awhile. I have been doing well. I was diagnosed with a 2.7 cm Rt AN in March 2010. I got a lot of very helpful information from this site. I want to thank all of you for all the support you gave -- it was needed and it helped.
After researching for several months, I decided to do "FSR". I had 30 treatments. I completed those on the 12th of July. I have to go back and see my Dr next week and then 3 months after my last treatment I will be having a repeat MRI so see how the tumor is doing. I have lost alittle hair at the site of treatment, but if you weren't looking for it, you wouldn't know. I have been having "FULLNESS" in my head -- not everyday. It seems like it wants to radiate out and give me a slight earache in both ears -- not bad, but there. When I have this feeling, my hearing is different also. Just wondering if any of you have experienced this feeling and what can you tell me about it.
Tired -- that seems to be getting better. During my treatments, I did have some days that I had to just sit down and rest -- body was talking to me. It was very busy around here at that time too, so that was another reason I was tired. Nothing wrong with a nap every now and then.
How have all of you been doing?? For those of you that have had Radiation treatments --- how long would you say that you had side effects from the treatments and how are you doing now? It is so nice to hear from others that have gone thru the same treatment. Hope all is well with you and hope to hear from you.
If any of you have questions about my FSR treatment, I am willing to share with you as much as I can. I was given such support from others on this forum -- now it is time for me to help others.
Thanks --- Patt from Minnesota
