Iressa and Brain Mets


Recommended Posts

Thanks Elaine for the info. When my brain mets were found, my doctor did say that there was some information that Iressa helps attack brain mets, but that there was not enough information yet, still too new. My brain mets are all very small, 2-3mm (although there are 6) and I was taken off Iressa during the 2 weeks of wbr, again not enough information about how Iressa reacts with the radiation, meaning it may enhance it and affect the "good" brain cells too. (I need those, feel like I have a little less these days :? ) Anyway, I am now back on Iressa and a little nervous about being off of it for 2 weeks.

I will find out next week at my dr. appt. when my next scans will be.
