Thank you Sharon. I'm glad last week is behind you and I hope this week is bringing you more comfort and less pain. Your prayers are so much appreciated and will be returned! I will think of you daily.
Given that my dad's other mets are shrinking from the Ipi, our oncologist wants to proceed with Cyberknife on the remaining mets in his brain. Our Neurosurgeon and Radiation Oncologist were hesitant last week when this was recommended. I know they'll be discussing it more this week, but was there any hesitation in having Cyberknife done right after your crannie? One of my dad's remaining brain mets was bleeding a bit at the time of the crannie, but due to the positioning of it they did not remove it. It's stopped bleeding and hasn' shown additional growth…..I'd hate for him to have even more side effects, but obviously we want to treat the melanoma the best we can….
I'll post updates about his progress with Ipi….hopefully great ones!
I appreciate your response so much.
