Mixed results

Went in for a brain scan prior to chemo yesterday, three weeks ago received good news that chemo was shrinking nodes and I was going into maintenance mode. Results of brain scan show one node (not sure if that is what it's called) and I will be going in for radiation treatment. In discussion I was told that this is common and that the radiation should clean up the problem. I am sure others have been through this and was just asking for results.

HI,

I'm sorry for this dip in the road but it sounds like you've already got a good game plan. targeted radiation, cyber knife or similar to pin point that lone tumor/node can work to eliminate it. I've known others who have had radiation to the brain successfully and it sounds like your medical team is on top of catching anything worrisome early!

Please keep us posted. My thoughts and prayers for your swift recovery.
