Greeneyes, (Toddy) Posted March 13, 2008 Share Posted March 13, 2008 Well here it is one week after my latest CT and the news this morning wasn't what I wanted to hear. It appears that I have one MET to the right frontal lobe of my brain some distance above my eye, very small but there none the less. I'm now scheduled for a full brain and spinal MRI to be followed by a PET along with further consultation. There was some discussion regarding what the treatment might be based on different possible findings. If it is just the one, surgical removal at this point followed by radiation to the perimeters were suggested as the best treatment. Another option was radiation to the point of the met from several different angles. If there are other tiny ones then I guess were are talking whole brain radiation and ? I'm frightened but more than anything my warped sense of humor is wondering who I'll be after any of these because the frontal lobe is where your personality traits are? I wasn't surprised at the news, just very sad. I had always thought given the size of my tumor that only a miracle could have staged it at 1B. I had been feeling a little off for a few weeks, getting tired again but it's allergy season here so I wasn't too worried. I was having some difficulty thinking of words, but I wrote that off to just more senior moments. Don't know what to expect but the next fight is on, I'll know more next Thursday.
