Experience with Brain Radiation?


Recommended Posts

I had stereotactic radiation for brain mets. After 3 months my MRI showed some edema by one met and a very small met, which was one of the treated mets. Then after another 6 weeks, they did another MRI. This is still showing something, but he thinks it's scar tissue. And now he wants a pet scan of the brain.

Someone told me radiation effects can last fo 12 months, therefore, I could still be getting advantage from the treatment.

Anyone who has had this, please let me know your experience.
