09/29/08 - Quick MU - The Plan

This treatment plan was first mentioned on my visit to Moffitt on September 23rd (I was relieved that my doctors had a plan). I will receive a course of radiation therapy first. Then I will have brain surgery to implant an Ommaya Reservoir (see diagram in "The Spread" post). Then I will have intrathecal chemotherapy (mostly confined to my brain and spinal cord (in my CSF), via the Ommaya Reservoir) for eight months. After that, treatment will end for this recurrence. Monitoring will begin again, to watch for any further signs of disease spreading.

More details in a future follow-up post...
