    AFTER THE TUMOR WAS SUCCESSFULLY REMOVED FROM MY BRAIN, WE STILL DID NOT KNOW WHERE IT HAD METASTASIZED FROM. SCANS, ETC., WERE DONE AND THE INFO GATHERED. RADIATION TO MY BRAIN THEN COMMENCED. EVEN THOUGH THINGS LOOKED GOOD ON MY BRAIN SCANS, THEY WANTED TO MAKE SURE.

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
