I have three tumors all stage IV an each treated differently since 2001 but woul like advice on having gamma knife after surgery on a brain tumor if anyone did that to clean up the area. Or other types of radiation. I just had to have an infection removed from the original surgery so I want to take this slow in getting into more treatment. Has anyone out there had further care after brain cancer? CIndy

Hi Cindy,I'm new to all of this, but I just had surgery 2 weeks ago for melanoma on my brain. I had it a couple years back on my head but not on the brain,.We will be talking the gamma knife in a couple of weeks with the docs.

How are you? I am curious if you went under the gamma knife. My doctors put my on hold as I have had so many problems.

Hi.I am reading up on this stuff as my Dad had surgery to remove a tumor on his brain 6 weeks ago. He was pretty weak after and still had 2 other tumors. He was to go back for the gammonife, but had a problem arise with swelling in his brain on Friday. Turns out in 6 weeks he has developed 4 more large tumors on the brain and one in his small intestine. It is spreading fast and they want to do whole brain radiation. I just wonder how you all are doing and would like to encourage that you stay on top of it, cuz doctors sometimes don't.
God Bless you.
