We have several people affected by brain cancer, so I am sure someone will be able to help. I'm going to see if I can find someone to give you some insight.

Hey I had brain surgeries of 2 and, shunt surgeries of 5. My eyelids were paralyzed after the surgery. Try radiation first because no body can guarantee your tumor will go perfectly or will not come back. I still refuse radiation because I am scared it might affect healthy cells. I learned to live like this... ( after 5 yrs)
I had the gamma knife procedure at the end of 2010 for three spots of brain metastasis. I have very good luck with the procedure. One month afterward, all of my spots were gone and none have returned or grown. I have a brain MRI every three months and am told that if there's any new growth, I'll have another procedure. It never hurts to get a second opinion.
