radiation on bleeding out tumors

Recommended Posts

Has anyone dealt with radiation on a tumor that has been bleeding out or causing blood clots? Mom has a tumor in the adrenal gland causing bleeding and they are going to do radiation...looking for any answers good or bad if anyone has had this experience...

My dad had RT for melanoma mets in the small intestine after he had stabilized and was discharged from the hospital.

He went daily M-F for 5 weeks. The first week was ok, but the nausea hit after that. Anti-nausea meds helped a bit.

The tumor stopped bleeding, BTW.
