Default Brain Tumor Update

Well guys went back to University of Michigan hospital yesterday to review my latest MRI. It was not the news my wife and I were expecting. They didn't get all the tumor when I had surgery back in September and what is left is attached to my Carotid artery and has grown entirely around it. So surgery is not an option. My choices are two different types of radiation. The first is some type of laser that is a strong dose and only given once. The other is a weaker dose that is done daily for five weeks. Doing more research and asking alot of questions right now. I'll keep you guys up to date as things progress.
