7 Years Post Gammaknife
« on: March 26, 2019, 12:31:14 pm »
Hi Everyone,

My name is Vivian. I had gammaknife radiation treatment 7 years this coming June 2019.

I post my results from my yearly MRIs. Since I reached 5 years after treatment, my MRIs are now every 2 years.

Therefore this is the first time that my MRI is 2 years in June.
Having said that I have been experiencing tiredness in my right eye and pain around the side affected of the ear. My eye becomes smaller and noticeable and quite tiring to keep open.

Has anyone experience anything like this?

Thank you

Hello Vivian,
Congrats on the 7 year mark. Sorry to hear about your eye, but I was wondering if you had a good diagnosis of the actual tumor after 7 years.  Did it shink, stay the same or grow.   Did the doctors give you a reason as to why your eye is shrinking.
I hope you are doing well.
