Here is a live video taken in the Operating Room during my awake brain surgery. Perhaps not for the weak of stomach, but you can observe the brain mapping that is occurring, with the probing of my parietal lobe and sensory motor cortex. I didn’t actually remember doing this activity, they asked me to identify a number written on my hand, but it looks like I got one of two questions correct!
I can tell you that within a couple of hours of this video, I was up and walking around the recovery room. I really believe that my ability to participate in my surgical procedure, my physical and mental preparation, as well as the skill of the team working here contributed fully to my remarkable ability to bounce back and recover from this procedure. I was released from the hospital 48 hours after this. More updates on my follow up radiation and chemo treatments will follow.
