Dylan's second brain surgery - Updates - Givealittle

  • Radiation      27 June 2019

    Hi all, I would personally like to thank everyone on behalf of my family and I, we are very grateful of all of your kind donations helping myself and my family be together through this cancer journey.

    Last week I finished my Stereotactic radiotherapy which lasted 1 week, from that I have struggled with sleeping and often waking 4 to 5 times through out the night and eventually waking up around 4am and being unable to sleep again.

    My Strength is down and fatigue taking its toll slowly on my body.

    Because of the radiation my left side has become numb a couple of times and we are hoping that it's only after effects from radiation and not permanent neurological problems.

    My next MRI is just under 1 month away.

    Other than that I'm going well and have been enjoying time with family and friends.

    Photo is of my radiation mask and sunglasses to make it fun.

    UPDATE

    Staples finally out on the 29th of May

    Meaning I'll somewhat be able to rest my head on a pillow comfortably

    Mid June I will start Stereotactic Radiotherapy to help with stopping/slowing down the tumour if it decides to come back.

    Apart from that

    I'm doing well, im walking 2-5km daily and spending time with family and friends.

    It's a long and slow road ahead of me recovery wise but I'm taking it head on

    Thankyou all for the support and messages

    Have a great week!

    Surgery was a great success.

    my specialists and surgeons are all very happy with how quickly I've bounced back.

    Surgery was Monday and going home Wednesday.

    Now for a slow recovery, and further treatment is still being discussed at this stage.

    Thankyou all for you kind donations and messages of support.

    My family an I deeply appreciate it.

    Dylan
