Pattym Posted May 10, 2008 Share Posted May 10, 2008 My mother got her results today from the scan and the MRI. The scan showed an improvement according to the Dr.,(my dad couldn't see any change) but he also noted that the lung tumor had changed shape???? The really bad news is that she once again has mets to the brain. He counted four, each the size of a pencil eraser. They go on Monday to me with the radiologist, again. It looks like WBRT this time. Her platelets are starting to come up, they have reached 52 today. We are done with chemo for now. I just don't know what to expect next. She is very down. All these chemo treatments with the other tumors shrinking, just to turn around and have new ones in the brain! In Sept. she had a very large brain tumor removed and then radiation to two smaller tumors. Then a follow-up MRI in the early parts of January that was all clear. I guess, I am just afraid that the radiation won't work as well this time. I just have no idea what to expect. Thanks for listening. My Dad is a wreck and I won't voice my concerns to him, he just can't handle it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
