Gamma Knife radiation surgery

Met neurosurgeon yesterday. Looks like Gamma Knife radiation surgery very soon. Apparently, with the number of lesions and the scatter throughout my brain, he says I will need 2 surgeries. 2nd will be 3-4 weeks after the first. That means one before my trip and one after. They have agreed to try to schedule around my trip ;-)

He went through the risks involved - some of which could be significant - but, have a 3% to 5 % (or less) risk. He also went through the process for the day - a very long day. I should hear about the schedule in the next couple days. Next, I will view a CD about the procedure.
