    I am curious how Cyberknife treatment for my spinal cord tumor will continue to to its thing, especially when I now have mild/moderate dermatome pain in my right abdomen. Hoping MRI in June will show a little more positive results with no need for more surgery on remaining ependymoma. T6-8 area, surgery October 2011. Hoping to be bike riding by this fall again! Cheers, Gary
