Last week I had treatment at Stanford with CyberKnife for a small tumor in my brain. Things have gone well with some fatigue. Had one 30 min. treatment. Anyone else with experience or treatment?

My husband had the GammaKnife treatment ( I think it's the same - 201 shots of radiation in one big machine right?). We where over there ( in Spokane, WA)  in Feb, he is going back for a follow up MRI and his last one showed a reduction of his tumor and he has responded well to that. He took Temodar as part of a protocol that he was one for 3 months or so, we will see how his next test results come out.

Good Luck

I had 3 saps of Cyberknife/SRS on July 14, 15, & 16, to mop up after July 01, 2010 brain surgey. All went well. I still have a little sore neck. and about last Wed. my hair started falling out right next to my scar line, so that took about 3 wks to start happening. Other then that no problems. I m doing a CT scan later today then meeting w/doc on Thursday to discusss next move. I leaning towards doing Ipi sometime soon, will keep ya posted.
