You can ask for something if you feel you can't handle the mask. Ask ahead of time before you go to your appointment.

I had no side effects during my treatment, but I did have a hard time with the treatment. Having that tight mask over my face and head. I had to take Xanax so I wouldn't freak out.

Shouldn't the doctors tell us this could happen when we have this treatment?

Hi, my name is Elaine, and I have been having dental problems over the past 6 weeks with my Gums. My Gums are pulling away from my teeth on the upper right side. I had SRS radiation treatments in December 2017 for a Tentorial meningioma on. And the place I went to Spectrum Health Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion said that these treatments do not cause this problem. So I must be special because it is has happen to me. Has anyone else have this problem with SRS Treatments for their meningioma brain tumor?
