mary colleen Posted April 30, 2007 Share Posted April 30, 2007 My husband is tentatively scheduled to begin Whole Brain Radiation in about 2 weeks, after his surgical wound is healed. I use the word "tentatively" because after reading various studies, I'm not sure that I won't end up questioning whether this is something he may want to reconsider. That aside, I'm looking for input from any WBR-experienced patients or caregivers regarding side effects and recovery time. I'm curious about the length and frequency of treatment, side effects, functionality during treatment, any care tips that I may need to be aware of, etc. My husband has had substantial loss of eyesight from his tumor, so I'm especially curious regarding whether anyone had any vision damage from WBR - he certainly cannot afford to lose any further eyesight. He can't drive or work with his current eyesight, but he can do a lot of normal things, and I certainly don't want him to lose that functionality. Any input is appreciated - thanks for your help.
