Hi, I had Steriotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) in 2005 for my Brain AVM. The surgery wasn't very well administerd so the following day I had Chronic Pain on my right hand side starting from the SRS surgery site at the base off my brain/top off my spinal cord. To top things off the Raidiation spreaded to healthy Brain Tissue (Radiation Indused) This caused me more Damage & after the 3yr timescale it hadn't worked meaning further unplanned Brain Surgery for me. The Chronic Pain is 24/7 with no respite & there seems no medications to help me so it looks like it is with me too my ending day's. "Great"

Hi, my storey is quite long I was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer 25 years ago had the operation to remove tumour clear margins no chemo or radiotherapy. In 2009 I was diagnosed with breast cancer had mastectomy chemo, radiotherapy, unfortunately I was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer again after 18 years, I couldn’t have an operation so had radical chemo radiotherapy. In 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer again I had mastectomy did not need chemo or radiotherapy, I am on Tomoxifen. I have just been diagnosed again with oesophageal cancer again the consultant says I can’t have the operation which I knew but he also said radiotherapy is not a option as I’ve had my limit, I have a pet scan on Monday and I’m waiting for an appointment with the oncologist to find out what is going to happen.
