Evergreen Mountain Lookout Tower hike fall 2004
Me again. I have no makeup and I am going ol' naturale here. Notice how I have a few bald spots on my head. For anyone who has radiosurgery to the brain losing a little hair in some places is normal. I had 3 round bald spots the size of a quarter. The hair has grown back now and is about 2 inches long.
A robotic arm delivers beams of radiation to various angles around the brain. So I figure where I lost some hair must be where the beams were most concentrated or points of entry that were used often. It is no big deal really and is a heck of a lot better than having your head shaved for surgery or losing a whole head of hair through chemotherapy!
