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.

I had a good surprise following my treatment this morning.

Quite unexpectedly, during my time with Dr. Kleinberg, I was presented with the treatment release paperwork! Although I have two treatments before completing this part of the journey,  signing off on the end of the treatment and the protocol to follow felt monumental.

Complete with the mask’s impressions on my forehead and chin, I felt that I truly on my way to a healthier being.

Now I need to get serious about my Superhero mask. I have gone from wanting to toss it in the trash; being finished with it entirely, to appreciating the significance of its role in my treatments.

It’s time to get creative.
