No Radiation For Me (at this point)

Had my visit with Dr. Agbi and we both decided that surgery is my best option.  No Radiation. The residual tumour is not near the cavernous sinus and is not close to my optical nerve.  However, it is near my carotid artery.  He is confident about the surgery.  I told him that I am concerned about loss of pituitary function (it is always a risk).   I must go for more test and meet another Neurosurgeon before we prep for Transsphenoidal surgery again.  There is no date scheduled.  I am a little apprehensive but believe that this is my best option as medication is not helping me.
