3 Rounds of Chemo/ Immunotherapy... Need advice on new issue


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 

I have posted on this forum before and it is a savior with all the advice and support being received. I am so grateful for the entire Lungevity community as I sought for support and experience stories that help me stay strong for my mom’s personal battle with stage 4 adenocarcinoma. 
She has just complete her third round of a combo. of chemotherapy and immunotherapy. Tumor has significantly decreased and she does feel a lot better. 
As for the brain met, the chemo has not affected and it has grew. It is in the right temporal lobe of her brain. They at first suggested radiation and have said it was going to be one round to get rid of. Now they are suggesting surgery????? 
Usually the doctors would speak to me regarding my mother’s health and plans, but this time they told her. I have been trying to reach him all day to have more concrete details. But any advice whatsoever would be greatly appreciated! 

Thank you all so much, from the bottom of my heart.

ashnnazila:  Great news that the treatment reduced the tumor in the lung. 

As for the surgery, does your mom want you to be the decision maker? In that case why don't you seek a  second opinion if you are not concinced,

Best of luck.
