Thank you so much for posting your CK experience. It has been so helpful for people like myself who just underwent radiation therapy. I had Gamma Knife in NY at Columbia - Gamma Knife is the technology employed by doctors here, but I have heard that treatment outcomes are fairly similar for either method CK or GK. I am unfortunately in the rare group that has had surgery, regrowth, and now radiation. When i was first diagnosed in may 2018 (at 36 weeks pregnant!) measurements were around 3cm and I was told I was not a great candidate for radiation. I went ahead with microsurgery 5 weeks post partum and had a bit of a rocky aftermath , but overall was fine. Lost hearing in my right ear, but was able to walk unassisted 10 days post surgery. And back to my normal working out 3 months post. 1.5 year later, my symptoms increased (facial numbness and severe dry eye), so i had an unscheduled MRI, revealing rapid growth from my previous MRI, and 2.5cm in (2.1x2.5x1.7) measurement. This time my doctor told me I was a candidate for radiation, and it would be the better approach rather than another surgery (i presume this is in order to save my facial nerve). I had gamma knife just about 5 months ago, and have experienced a whole host of symptoms. I was on decadron for 10 days about 1 month after due to extreme light headedness, and radiating tingliness, as well as overwhelming fatigue. The steroids helped, and 2 months went by where I was totally fine. Walking 6-7 miles daily, and just trying to manage the best I could, although with very severe anxiety. At exactly the 4 month mark, i developed a facial twitch, most cumbersome in my upper eyelid. It's been 3 weeks and its driving me nuts! the lip, eyebrow and cheek is not as pronounced, but the eye is very irritating. I took 2 rounds of medrol dosepack, and am taking Gabapentin 600mg daily (2x a day). Nothing really seems to be helping, and I am wondering how long yours lasted? Wondering if I should be pursuing any botox type treatments etc which I have heard can help or just try to wait it out till after scan. It is reassuring to read your twitch was transient and not permanent. I am 6 weeks away from my 6 month post GK checkup, and I am very anxious and nervous about the initial results. But it was helpful to read you had a similar sized tumor and have had great success. Many thanks for chronicling your journey, and I will be sure to pay it forward and chronicle mine post this 1st scan.
