I have a brain and only a brain!!!!

I got results from brain scan that says no evidence of disease of any kind there other than something about 2T and white matter, and the comment normal for her age lol. I will take an old brain any day. Now I wait to see if they got good samples on second biopsy. Oncology called with an appointment with Dr and then labs on Jan2nd. I have had enough experience with my dad to know that shortly after I should start treatment. Nervous especially radiation. My dad had hard time with throat and skin blisters. Nervous about chemo too, it’s just the burns on radiation looks so bad. If it kills my cancer though I can do this. As always I hope all here are doing well and getting good new.

Prayers

Hi Lisa.  Just wanted to suggest something to you regarding radiation.  I had 30 treatments to my left breast in 2018. I bought some cheap 100% cotton tank/camisole shirts and I used Aquaphor ointment everyday up to 2x's per day.   As I understood it, the radiation was killing any stray cancer cells, but over the course of treatment it also kills all your skin cells.  It looks and feels like a burn but it actually isn't.  It's dead skin that has to peel off and grow back.  Once your treatment is complete your skin should heal quickly.  Mine did.

Good luck to you.

Thank you so much for the tips. Anything is helpful. I wish I had some good tips for you, but unfortunately I don’t have lots of experience.I pray for nothing but good reports for you both.

Prayers

You may not have any issues with radiation. As with chemo, everyone reacts differently. I had fatigue; that was the worst side effect for me. I had (and have to a slight extent) some issues swallowing but I did not burn. The lack of burns made me question if the radiation actually worked (it did). Just make sure you get enough rest as you go through it.
