We drove from Snake River to Olympia yesterday without incident. Beautiful day. Daughter and SIL taking time to assist us.
This is not scalpel surgery. They focus 196 gamma rays to meet in a pea sized spot in my thalamus. After 3 to 6 months I will notice change. Next year I can go and have other side of brain done. I believe this procedure is also used for inoperable brain tumors. I go in at 7:00am and when I am done they send me home to resume my normal life. This involves volunteering, sing, church, family and most important causing trouble in two different states the same day
You go girl! and God Bless!
I wish you a succesful and healthy treatment. I hope when we hear from you again you will be much better. God be with you.
If you google GSI Darmstadt and Hirntumor you will find lots of entries about the very beginning and later....
Now they even try to fight against lung cancer and I was interested in that. But 2003 my brother-in-law passed away - they couldn't help him then. It was too early and each case is an individual case
Dear Sandyqueen, wishing you good luck and sending my love.
You will be treated well with this surgery. I think this had been developed approx. years ago at GSI in Darmstadt and tested in Heidelberg at DKFZ (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum). I had been reading about this in the local newspaper; they reported about a guy who came for
treatment and in between the sessions he and his wife stayed at a
camping site close to Darmstadt. It has been tested for several years
and now they are really good at this kind of surgery and now it's done in several countries. Good luck for you! Maria
Manga tak (Norweigan Many Thanks) for all the prayers and good wishes. I will post back when everything is over.
God Bless you all.
May God bless and keep you through this medical issue, Sandy!
Hi Sandy, Ar you talking about Swedish Medical Center in Englewood, Colorado? That is 7 minutes from me. It is totally amazing what they have learned about the brain in the last 20 years. I pray that all goes well for you and you are stitching soon! God Bless.
May the surgeons doing your procedure have God guiding their hands. I also pray that you will be back to your normal self as soon as possible. Love and blessings Chris
My prayers are with you for a safe trip & speedy recovery.
Isn't it amazing how far medical science has come to be able to address this issue without a huge brain invasion? I wish you the very best!! I would love to hear updates as you recover from this procedure, and can hopefully find the portions of your life that have been interrupted or taken away by the tremor.. It sounds like the changes will happen slowly over a period of time rather than that "instant change" that some surgeries and brain implants can yield. I hope that this is everything that they expect, and more, in the positive sense! You should keep a journal of your recovery so that you can look back and see just how much this improves your life. Best wishes and prayers for the very best outcome, and safe travels!
Thoughts, Prayers and Blessings to you and yours! ***Lots of Flowers too***
