    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    On 1/14, I had an MRI of my head and neck due to new onset weakness to my left arm, and some left-sided neglect. Well, they found a quarter-sized lesion in my frontal lobe. On Thursday, 1/23, I am having a Gamma-Knife procedure to get rid of the lesion. I will be starting physical therapy/occupational therapy for the weakness, which will probably get worse for a while after the procedure. Frightened about Thursday, no sure what to expect. . I also have had pain to my right hip area. So, MRI Wednesday to make sure the metastasis that was there hasn't gotten worse. A lot to digest.
