I had some serious anxieties leading up to the brain surgery yesterday. Think Gamma Knife radiation. Think brain surgery. Think visual cortex.
I was worried about:
What if I died?
What if I went blind?
What if I had brain damage from the surgery?
I was hoping for:
Gamma radiation - could I be the next Bruce Banner (Hulk)?
If I go blind, could I be the next Matt Murdock (Daredevil)?
What if I came out of surgery being able to speak Portuguese or super sight?
As it turns out, none of the above. It was pretty boring overall. I’ll run another set of scans in the next 6 weeks or so, and we’ll see what we can see.
