Judy369 Posted January 17, 2006 Share Posted January 17, 2006 I am new and don't know much about message boards but I can use as much support as I can get. I am a 50 years old female.I was not sick had to signs of anything.On Aug.2 ,2005 three days before my 50th birthday I had a seizure while pulling into the parking lot of a Walmarts. My daugther and her 5 year old son was with me. I was taken to the emergency and they did test.They told me I had sclc and it had spread to the brain and I had 5 leisons in my brain.I never dreamed I was even sick. They begain 14 days of whole brain radation 35 grays and 1 week later I started Chemo with Carboplatin and etoposide. 5 weeks of that along with radation to the lung.Something they don't do often I understand for several reasons but I wanted to be very aggressive with the treatment as long as my body would handle it. I was very lucky and did well with few side effects. Today my lung is clear and I have only one small leison left in the brain along with some white brain matter leisons that don't look to be cancer.Most likely it is damage from the whole brain radation.They will do another MRI in Feb.and do gamma knife if the cancerous lesion is still there. Thats my cancer history.I worry about the leisons in the white brain matter they say that they are doing no damage.Does anyone know about this?
