No significant news at the moment! The Gamma Knife radiation procedure on my brain appears to have went well back in November. When we went to MD Anderson in January and they were unable to see the brain spot they radiated because it had blood around it. They feel confident the tumor was destroyed, but we are going back in March for another MRI to see if they can get a better look (hopefully the blood surrounding the area will have dissipated).
The great news is the scans in January showed no evidence of new disease and all tumors were stable. Stomach pain and headaches is the only real issue I'm dealing with as of late. I had my monthly Nivolumab infusion today and I'm usually a little fatigued for a few days following that.
I attached a picture of me at the Gamma Knife procedure, quite an experience let me tell you. Thank you for all your continued prayers and well wishes!
Love to all,
