stand4hope Posted June 21, 2005 Share Posted June 21, 2005 Well, it looks like more SRS (stereotactic radiosurgery). It's one of those damned if you do and damned if you don't. The onc said since they will be treating the same 4 mets that have already been treated with WBR and SRS, that his chances of necrosis to good tissue goes up 20%. That's comforting, huh? He also has to have a stereotactic MRI (thinner slices) and told him more mets may show up. On the other side, he said if he doesn't have the SRS, the tumors will just continue to grow and damage tissue anyway. Don said "Burn'em". It's temporarily scheduled for July 11, and he gets to take wonderful Decadron in the meantime so he can stay awake all night. Sorry for the sarcasm. I guess I would have been just as upset if they had said "no treatment possible." Go figure. I guess I'm just one of those flakey girls, huh? And, no, I'm not a blonde.
