I'm about to start this type of radiaton treatment for a menenginoma that was found near my brain stem. The doctor and nurses have only given me the most hopeful predictions of success with this treatment. The biggest challenge for them was mapping the area of treatment because the new radiation cannot hit other areas that was irradiated. I had been treated with cobalt radiation almost 50 years ago after brain tumor surgery.
Has anyone else had or will be having CyberKnife treatments? I live near Syracuse, NY. I don't really know where other ones are. Anyone?
