Knute brain met treatment
Knute had gamma knife last wednesday for the two new brain mets. We have started the weaning process from the steriods and hope to be able to get in an IPI trial in Sept. He is doing well and is active on Facebook with the smaller screen provided by his I phone his visual problems are lessened. A complete computer screen has too much visual information at one time. It is a crazy side effect of his brain mets and their locations. We hope to get after those new lung mets in the near future.
