There are almost two weeks into 2018, and I'm getting ready for the final surgery, scheduled for next Friday.
Final? As doc says, is the last intervention on the core tumor, nothing more can be done on it after, since the live part of it will be absorbed. It has to be done gradually to avoid cerebral mass collapse into itself! Hopefully the bone-remnants of the tumor will hold everything in place. But we don't know the outcome yet, there are many scenarios, it could go anywhere. Let's just hope everything can be kept under control.
Wish me luck!
