Hi Nancy! I just read your post, and i had a similar experience at Hopkins. Dr. T was very patient and answered all questions/concerns. Then i had an appt with Dr. K about radiosurgery. Both appointments on the same day was quite alot to absorb. But, more importantly, i was not prepared to hear that they did not do fractionated treatments anymore (at least that is what my husband confirms he heard in the consultation!) and that they use GK (Gamma Knife). Ok, i didn't even know they had a GK machine! - Well, i am in W & W mode, so am glad i have time to do more research.
If you have ANY questions, this is such a wonderful place, with WONDERFUL people! I read all the stories, good and not so good.
Everyone here inspires me to be strong, continue the 'quest' for answers and not be afraid.
Keep in touch, ok and i will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!
