Guest randa'sdaughter Posted June 8, 2007 Share Posted June 8, 2007 Hi guys! It's been a LONG time since I posted anything. My mother went into "remission" after her first diagnosis. Then it came back. She fought hard and went back into "remission". Now, it's back again. 3 spots were found on her brain about 2.5 weeks ago. She has already done whole brain radiation (finished up on Wednesday). Scheduled for cyberknife on Monday. MRI of her spine is scheduled for Tuesday. The doctor believes it's gone into her spinal fluid. Mother has been given the option of having a spinal tap and if it's there, she can have the port put into her brain and have chemo. She has stated that's not what she wants to do. She's gone from walking on her own to now using a walker. She actually fell last week and hit her head pretty good. But she's scared to walk on her own. My question is what can my family and I expect next? I'm wondering how long? I remember how my grandmother (20+ years ago) laid in a bed almost comatose and I don't want that to happen to my mother. I'm just wondering if any of y'all have gone through this with the spinal fluid? Thanks much! I've been lurking - just not posting. Love all of you guys!
