lovelife Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 Hi Everyone, I called Moms doctor in regards to the radiation she just started (which we thought was the reason she was becoming confused this past week.) The saw her right away and discovered two lesions on the brain. ITs been almost one year since she has had brain surgery and radiation (partial)...We hoped this would never happen... that it would come back but it looks like it did... she just did a brain scan three weeks ago that looked perfect....Cant believe how quickly things changed.... Just last month at the doctors appt they said no cancer activity in the whole body, and they were just doing radiation on the lung for the one tumor that is visible but died, so they wanted to get rid of it... Does anyone know if that tumor in lung most likely became active which caused lesions in the brain... I thought that has to be a tumor or some kind of activity somewhere else in the body for it to go to the brain. I'm sure they will do another pet scan they just did one last month. Hopefully the steriods they put her on last night before she left the hospital will bringing the swelling down in her brain, so she will be less confused. I saw a difference this morning, seemed better then yesterday. you can have a normal conversation with her , but she can even tell you when she is having a moment and gets confused. She said to me I hope the doctors dont tell me I can die... It breaks my heart to see her upset, but i'm being so very strong for her. She is waiting for the brain specialist the one who actually did her brain surgery last year to call her. They are gonna meet and go over a game plan. I hope there is a game plan and they can do something. THe radiologist said one lesion is very very small and the other one is larger. She's beat all the odds this year, I asked myself this morning, can she do it again? is it possible to get rid of these two lesions? or is god telling us something? I stayed up all night in tears, and today I start fighting. IF anyone can share anything with me I would appreciate it.... I"m the one that holds my family together and puts on the strong face. So thank you for letting me share my feelings.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
