Hello I am new here I am a caregiver to my husband of 17 years,he was dx in June of this year with SCLC limited stage.
To date he has had 39 radiation treatments,9 chemo treatments (cisplatin & VP-16)
Last friday he had an MRI done fo his brain,the test results were horrifiying he has several mets to the brain ( 6 tumors) and has started whole brain radiation!!
His oncologist only gives him a survival of no more than 6 months.
This is such a shock as he did so well with the initial treatments he recieved!!!
We are both numb,I just don't know what to think!!
If anyone else had had similiar experiences with SCLC and mets to the brain please feel free to respond!!
