I've been persuaded to have surgery, followed by targeted radiation. This will be my best shot at getting it all.
I really liked the surgeon we met yesterday. He was patient, clear, forthcoming and took lots of time to answer our questions. I've decided to trust him.
I was feeling pretty devastated yesterday. I was hoping hard that the route I wanted to go would also be the best route. Who wouldn't want the treatment that purports to have few side effects and doesn't involve having your head cut open?
But I went for a lovely walk with a friend and then slept for 11 hours last night. Today, I feel much more at peace with my decision.
Although I'm still a little freaked out.
One cool thing: The surgeon says that if you rate the difficulty level of what the kinds of surgery he does from 1-10, mine will be a 3.
Makes it sound pretty simple, for brain surgery.
