Brain Mets!

Recommended Posts

I never thought I'd be writing this, but I am. Tuesday night I had some troubling symtoms which, when added to some other concerns I've had the past month, convinced me to go to the most fully equipped ER on this part of the island. Spent 6 hours there Wednesday, had an MRI that was clearly positive for brain mets, saw my medical onc Thursday morning, radiation onc that afternoon, and started WBR the same day. Did the second WBR session Friday, and there will be 8 more over the next week and a half. Still feeling pretty good.

If you really want details, I started a thread at GRACE with a rather long post — at this point there are 33 messages in the thread spread across 3 pages:

Aloha for now,

Adding my prayers for you. Looks like you've got a solid plan to tackle the mets and I will keep praying the WBR is a total success with little to no side effects.

Please please keep us posted.

Another friend, Doc Rodgers, was just dx with 7 brain mets and starts WBR this coming week too.

My cup is full of prayers for you both.

(((hugs)))

Sorry to hear this Ned. I should have your story memorized, but I don't. Is this your first run at WBR? Col had a bunch of rounds after her tumor removal. She handled it very well, and we haven't had any issues in the brain since then. Which tells me it worked very well for her. I'm praying you get the same results.

Add me to the list of well-wishers! Ned and I were going to meet for lunch yesterday, but had to take a raincheck due to those darn mets. I believe he's getting his radiation treatment at the same facility as my dad got his, and they're excellent. He's in great hands, folks! :D

Ned - you are truly an angel, asking how my dad was and offering your help even as you're going through this. My prayers and blessings are with you.

Found this Ned. At least I didn't "miss it", it was during my cruise when I was out of contact. Damn, I'm so sorry this is happening to you but you are tough and getting thru it. I have to turn it around in 2 days to get to Orlando and my scans so it will be awhile but I'll catch up with your story on cancergrace.
