12/1 darn - on to next procedure
Got an early call at 7:30 for an immediate Gamma Knife radiosurgery, went to IU, got prepped (IV, frame screwed onto my head, IV contrast, MRI), waited for doctors to plan, they came out to tell me they can't do the procedure. Apparently, the lesion location is outside the area where the radiation beams can be focused. But...I still have the frame attachment sores and I am dozy from the sedation. Gave me options - scheduled a different procedure (Novalis radiosurgery). I go in tomorrow, Friday, at 9am.
