Another option ?
« on: February 21, 2006, 11:29:13 pm »
Hello everyone. I am 45 with a 7mm AN on my left side. I am at loma linda u in Ca. I have hade five treatments with proton radiation. I have had no side effects. I have been reading the posts since my bad news on dec 28. I have not seen any discussion on proton radiation. It has been very easy with the exception of absence from my family. I want to share with others looking for options. that this is an option. No surgery, No halo, No side effects. At least so far for me. I welcome any input that anyone might have. This was the hardest decision I ever hade to make. I won't know if it is the right decision maby for years to come. This kind of radiation is not the same as all the others. I just wanted others to know about it. It needs to be part of the decision prosess. As one more option for those pre op. and pre radiation. Ken
