My sister Jill's treatment plan at Mayo

Posted by @nancye3, Aug 9, 2017

Wanted to reach out to all of you who have been so responsive and concerned about my sister Jill. She met with all 3 Docs today at Mayo, and she is scheduled to have Gamma Knife Radiation on all 3 tumors next Wednesday. I am so relieved she will not have to
Go thru surgery again.
Thanks Again for all your support and well wishes. xoxo

Hi Colleen,Thanks for asking!  She had her Gamma Knife Radiation on Wednesday, is feeling some numbness and a little sore, but I think it all went very well.  She will fly home tomorrow! Yeah!!!  I am finally starting to feel better, after 2 weeks of bronchitis and laryngitis.  I am just so happy and relieved Jill is coming home!! 

Sending her another huge hug, and hoping for the very best outcome! I see my neuro tomorrow and we’ll decide what to do with my new tumors. One for all and all for one! hugs and love, peg:-)

I am wondering if you could share the size of your sisters tumors. My doctor told me today it was my call, I could have surgery now or wait for a year. He did not like the option of radiation because of probable damage to the optic nerve. His recommendation was wait for the year, and then see, but waiting is very hard for me. I like to make a decision, and then go. He is very conservative in his treatment and would rather I wait and enjoy my present quality of life, then do surgery with a questionable outcome. I came home, had a root beer float and may have cookies for breakfast:-) Hoping your sister will have a great recovery, just let her know we all have to get used to a new normal, but it’s wonderful as well. hugs, peg
