Hello to All,
I have recently been diagnosed with Brain mets and underwent emergent surgery to remove one tumor. I was told that I have a second tumor that could be treated with Cyberknife. Just finished the preparation work up for that and was told today that there are 4 more micro lesions on MRI and that whole brain radiation would be the next appropriate step. I have read that many people with multiple brain lesions opt for treatment with RSR rather than whole brain radiation. My lung mets were responding well to abraxane and stable for the most part.
I will be speaking to my Onc tomorrow. His plan was to start back on abraxane and add Carboplatin for brain.
Anyone had whole brain radiation and could share side effects or thoughts on WBR vs. RSR.
Anyone been treated with Carboplatin and could share their experience.
Just feeling alittle overwhelmed by rapidly changing plans and feeling overwhelmed.
thank you in advance for any information you can share.
love to all
