First came the tumor; it’s the root of the issue.

Radiating the Tumor details my experiences living with acromegaly. The journey begins where the tumor regains its strength, working to take over a second time.

Within the posts I share my attempts to find peace of mind, to heal and my hopes for remission. I detail my thoughts and feelings throughout stereotactic radiation treatments. And continue as, well, one does in life.

Originally diagnosed with acromegaly due to a hormone producing pituitary macro-adenoma in early 2014, in May of 2014 I underwent transsphenoidal surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.

I was at the beginning, and I remain today, committed to fighting for peace of mind free from the pains of acromegaly. I am determined that this rare disease will not claim me as its victim.

Three days without the sunrise drive to Baltimore felt like quite a treat. Unfortunately I spent the majority of first two trying to sleep away what had seemed an unconquerable headache. It was not our finest of Memorial Day weekends that’s for sure.

But today was a new day.

Mr. P and I started on our journey a tad early and arrived with extra time to catch up with my new friends. I enjoyed and even looked forward to the morning chats. Each of them is an inspiration and I feel my own strength and courage reenergized.

Lisa came to get me this morning and, after confirming that Friday’s headache inducing treatment was not the result of receiving the wrong treatment, I hopped up on the table. With the mask lowered securing my head and shoulders to the table and the frame snapped into its place, I was ready treatment 15 of 25!
