Feb. 24, 2009 Gamma knife radiation perfexion treatment The procedure is nothing short of a miracle in technology, however it requires a metal `cage` to be attached to your skull. That process is brutal, as it the pressure release when it is removed. But they got em' so it was worth it :)

4-12-10 targeted therapy radiation
None to date - The surgeon and oncologist felt that I should wait before starting chemo or radiation and be on the anti-fungal medication, indicating at least a year, to see if once the infection was gone, the remaining spots in my lungs would be gone. In January of 2010, I lost my job, medical insurance and the financial ability to continue the meds. I've recovered enough to find work and have been there long enough to receive medical insurance...now to find the courage to return to the doctor and take up where we left off, uhhh less the pre-existing conditions...to be continued...

I started radiation treatments on October 25, 2010. I'm not sure what all of this means but my total dose is 6,120cgy. I have 34 treatments total; so I receive 180cgy a day, monday through friday. So I should finish around December 13, 2010 depending on if I miss any days or if my oncologist wants to change my plan. My side affects aren't too bad. I already have some shortness of breath so I don't think it is from the radiation. I have really sensitive skin so It is kind of red, so the therapists gave me some cream to rub on it. They mentioned that my skin will get worse before it gets better.
