My mother has had 2nd chemo treatment and it landed her in the hospital the second time so Im looking into the CyberKnife idea. I have read where it has done amazing things for
the Ovarian Cancer and without all this sickness and sometime Fainting and throwing up.
Must be a better way and looking to the Cyberknife now.

Sorry, I don't have any experience with Cyberknife but I'm so sorry your mom is in the hospital. I am praying for her as she goes through treatment and am hoping for the best possible outcome.

Take care,

Kelly

You don't mention the extent of, or the history of your mother's disease. Cyberknife, as I understand it, is a very focused treatment, used in cases where a localized tumor is removed, say from the brain or liver. Has your mother had a debulking surgery yet?

I had gamma knife surgery when my cancer metastasized to my brain. A year later and all is well!
