Olivia Posted August 3, 2020 Share Posted August 3, 2020 Sheesh. Long morning. Wasn’t the news I was hoping for, but at least we have a plan. After meeting with the oncologist, it looks like there are 5-6 tumors in the brain. Surgery is not an option due to the amount of tumors. The treatment plan will be radiation to the ENTIRE brain to ensure hitting all spots; even spots that are microscopic and might not have been detected or cancer cells that appear during this process. It will be a 10 day treatment plan. About 4-6 weeks after, we will do a follow up MRI to see where we’re at. If the larger tumors haven’t completely shrunk, it’s possible to give extra radiation to those larger spots. We don’t have the schedule printed yet for the start day of treatment, but it should be in the next week or so. Someone please tell me there is hope here. I’m terrified. I am desperately asking for anyone who has lived through brain metastasis to please tell me you’re doing okay. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
