My brain radiation… Monday was a consultation and MRI. Wednesday was my mask fitting and trial run. And Friday was the actual radiation. I only have one tumor in my brain and it's relatively small, so they did one strong local dose on it. It lasted about 30-40 minutes. No pain or feeling of anything during the radiation. I felt both common side effects later that day which were headache and fatigue, but neither were that bad. From what I understand the success rates with what I had and what they did is high and they have no reason not to assume that it went well. They're having me come back in a month for another MRI. My fingers are crossed. 1 down. 6 to go.
