Just had my gamma knife treatment
« on: May 28, 2007, 06:29:21 pm »
Thanks again to everyone for providing me with so much information after my diagnosis in February.

I had gamma knife surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago on May 24 and I can report that my experience was pleasant.

Dr. Getch and team were amazing in how they communicated with my wife and me before and during the procedure.  I was there for about 8 hours, most of which was spent waiting for various phases of the treatment.

Afterward, I had some swelling in my forehead and I continue to have headaches, but tylenol takes care of them.

We go back in six months for an MRI and go from there.

Good luck to all who are awaiting treatment.  I hope your experience will be as pleasant as mine.
