Question to all -
Has anyone had gamma knife treatment? If yes, what were side effects, if any?
What has been the course of progression free survival and LGG regrowth?
Thanks so much!

While we did not have gamma knife surgery, our surgeon thought highly of it in certain cases. A lot depends on the size and location of the tumor. If it is small and near the outer edges of the skull, I hear that it is effective (again, location means a lot because some areas are more crucial than others.) I wish you the best.

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
