Mary Posted April 12, 2003 Share Posted April 12, 2003 I did some research and came to the conclusion that Gamma Knife was the way to go for the brain met. The question now is whether to continue the whole brain radiation or put that on hold until after we see the neurosurgeon??? I talked with my sister and she said, "that she plans to be around for at least four years until her youngest son graduates from High School." I pointed out that she may want to find doctors that were willing to help her reach that goal instead of just following protocal. It still really bothers me that her radiologist was either ignorant or lied. She agreed that we need a second opinion. I think it was Laurie that posted a place that you could send your scans off to and they would give you a second opinion for $600. I figured that would be the quickest result and depending what they say, I could then talk her into visiting a major cancer center. Thank you all for the good information and support.
