Brain Mets-do they ever completely go away?


Recommended Posts

My sister was dxed with limited sclc July 2004. In June 2005, she was dxed with 7 brain lesions. She received WBR and now has 3 lesions. She will receive the gamma knife next week. Her radiologist and neurologist basically told her that they will never get rid of these lesions and that if she remains stable, that's great and if they shrink, they've hit a homerun. Has anyone with brain lesions every gotten rid of them completely. What kind of feedback have you received from your doctors. Her doctors seemed cautiously optimistic but the very fact that they said her lesions will never completely go away, has all of us very worried. I would appreciate any information that anyone can give us.
