So it looks like I will have my surgery on Nov 14th. Some background on how this got decided.
We met Dr Sekhar last Saturday and he was very confident and positive about saving my right eye. After getting another opinion , we decided to stick with Dr Sekhar. He is Professor and Vice Chairman at UW and practices at HarborView.
Some more tests to go and then things will be ready for the surgery. I will be at HarborView for about a week. Will update with the details once I get them. The surgery will include a craneotomy with the right orbital bone above the eye till some inches behind the hairline will be removed and then the tumor will be resected. I will mostly get a titanium plate after that.
I will be on steroids soon to prep for the surgery, so i will now have more energy during the day. People also adviced me to have a lot of fun and be active, so I am making some plans for moms seattle tour!!
I will be checking email and this blog till 13th. I will be in ICU probably for 2 days and then in the general ward for another 3-4 days. My cell will be with mom during that time.
