Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for meningioma, right trigeminal nerve

Posted by Elaine R. @mrser52, Dec 20, 2017

I have my first SRS treatment tomorrow and I am so scared.

@mrser52

Yes, but they have really decreased. I keep praying to God.

Do you know if there is any one else in the this group that has the tentorial meningioma brain tumor? I would like to find out how they are doing ?

@mrser52 I am sorry to hear that – especially since you had been tolerating the treatments so well. Have you contacted your doctor to see if this is an expected reaction to the treatment on the 28th?

I hope that all will get back to normal soon. Keep us posted as to how you are feeling.

Hi, @mrser52 — just wanted to touch base and see how the feeling ill and kind of depressed since your last treatment are going today?

Also, I thought you might like to meet a couple members in the Connect community who have experience with loved ones with brain tumors. Please meet @IndianaScott and @dawn_giacabazi.

I believe you are all done with your treatments at this point? If so, what is the next step for you?

Just want you to know that we’re here and listening. You’re not alone. Are you still experiencing headaches or have they subsided?

Yes, but I’m not sure if they are from the SRS treatments or something else.

I am so depressed lately, from nerve pain and pressure in my eye and forehead. And I get so cold with the nerve pain. I don't know how much more I can take this. Do you have any advice for me?

Learn as much as you can about your condition. That helps me…. I think. It's all a very individual work.

I have and it has helped in some of my concerns but not all. But I did get and answer from someone on here about intracranial pressure and that was so very helpful. Thank You for your help.
