9 months on the wonder drug Xalkori did such great things for my lung, but did not protect the brain. I found out today that I have 50 brain mets...or is that when he stopped counting? I have absolutely no idea what I am going to do. The side effects of WBR sounded horrifying and I was told it wouldn't be able to wipe them all out. The radiation oncologist was in favor of me talking to someone at Yale about Gamma Knife, but in the end it will be the brain that ends my life, not the lung. I don't know if brain mets count as progression, but I am going to talk to someone regarding LDK. I feel like my life has become a horror show. Does anyone have anything that might help my situation?
