Hello, Ilyse.

Thank you for sharing your story and emphasizing that it is so important to listen to your own body. You certainly are a survivor. Best of luck with the gamma knife. I don't know a lot about it either, but I'm sure there are some people here that could give you some advice/info.

Be well,
Kerri
