Bad headaches 6 months after GK
« on: October 10, 2010, 10:00:20 pm »
Hi all,

Haven't been here for a while because there was nothing new to report. Hubby had his 6 month follow up and MRI from his GK a couple of weeks ago and the Doc was very pleased. His AN has shrunk 10% and the Doc said "it definitely looks like it's been nuked" which is great. Hubby doesn't have to go back for another MRI for a year. Of course after this appointment he started to get really bad headaches. I think some describe them as "ice pick" headaches? He has never been a headache sufferer so these are really bothering him. I wanted to come here and find out if this is something that others have experienced post GK, this far (6 months) and if so will these headaches last?

Thanks in advance.
Left AN 1.7 x 1.5 x 1.4 cm diagnosed 1/19/10, SSD left ear
GK 3/11/10 performed by Dr. McMenomy of OHSU and Dr. Bader of the Gamma Knife Center of Portland.
