dani hobbs Posted January 13, 2005 Share Posted January 13, 2005 My sister has experienced dizziness since New Year's. She thought it might be her new chemotherapy regimen (please see her profile, below). Her oncologist ordered a stat MRI to the brain & the cancer has spread to the brain. She's to consult with a radiologist re irradiating the brain but has started to wonder if it's worth it--says she'll have to receive a treatment every day, 5 days a week. She is so dizzy that she can't get to the bathroom alone, or take a shower standing up. Her oncologist is quite honest that her lifespan is now a matter or weeks or months. She is wondering how she will feel physically, what the quality of the remainder of her life will be, without radiation. Will she be in pain, will she be able to speak, to see, to take care of her own personal needs, to have any enjoyment with her family, to take a couple of last trips? I can't find any information on the internet on that topic, and I'm exhausted but I promised her I would try to find something. Could anyone help?
