Have you discussed Gamma Knife with your n/s? It’s non-invasive. I understand it’s an option with tumors less than 3 cm. Dr. Danish is one of the doctors who are on this website. I have consulted with him and will probably have the balance of my tumor radiated with this procedure sometime this spring. Meds didn’t work for my symptoms. They just make me too tired. Dr. Danish told me Gamma Knife might not alleviate my symptoms either, facial numbness, burning in right eye, but he recommends it as a preventative so the tumor won’t ever grow back. It’s sounds like you are getting great care, though!
