moorech3 Posted September 2, 2007 Share Posted September 2, 2007 Hi - My mom just had brain surgery to remove 2 tumors. The doctors want to start whole brain radiation next week but now she is feeling extremely tired (a new thing in this 18 month journey for her) as well as numbness and pain in her legs and hips. My research says maybe this is bone mets? The nurse she talked to told her she was trying to do too much after surgery - almost dismissing her symptoms but I am not convinved that is the case given how strong of a person she has always been both physically and mentally. Does anyone have advice on whether she should go ahead and have the WBR (10 days) first, or whether we should push to see about the possible bone mets first. I don't think they would treat both at the same time. Thank you for your insight - it is so hard having no idea what to do. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
