So the next stage is Gamma surgery. I have to recover first from the latest cranial surgery and then I am on the last lap, travelling down to Birmingham for a final blitz. My tumour has gone so there's no reason to worry. My surgeon will work alongside the Birmingham team and she hopes to never see me again. I am desperate to start making progress - I would love my face to look normal, and it is still unclear whether my hair will grow back. But each day is a blessing, and despite looking like a octogenarian balloon, I'm still standing and ready for the final hurdle.
