I am approaching the eleven month mark post Cyber Knife. As the tumor swells from radiation, it pushes on the facial nerve. As a result, I have facial numbness on the AN side from my chin to the outer edge of my eye. My tongue and palate also experience numbness. It feels like pins and needles, kinda like novocaine is wearing off after a dental visit. I also get dizzy on a daily basis and feel off balance when walking. My November 2018 MRI indicated that the tumor was shrinking, although the symptoms have not changed. My doctor told me that I might get another swelling episode between 12 to 18 months. So who knows what my next MRI will indicate when I take it in May.
We are all experiencing similar and different symptoms, depending on the location and size of the tumor. I find that lots of rest, eating well, exercise and relaxation are key to feeling better. Best of luck.
