My father met with the radiologist yesterday and they decided to go ahead a radiate his brain for the second time. He will have 8 consecutive treatments. In addition, they have taken him off chemo because it was not working and he is now on tarceva.

Hoping all goes well with your dad. I was on Iressa when I had whole brain radiation and they had me stop taking it while going through the radiation. Once radiation was done, (I had 10 treatments) I started back on the Iressa and then was switched to Tarceva in January.

I was told they just didn't know the effects of the combination and wanted to avoid any complications.
