My mom was dignosed in 2008 with NSCLC IV with mets to the brain and adrenal glands.She received her chemo and radiation with the DR stopping all treatment saying she was in remission less than a year later saying all brain tumors, scars ect were gone. Well, meanwhile we had some issues and was unable to carry insurance for her then we when we were able to get it again her DR would work with us on her spin down. NOT to meantion mom didnt want treatment any longer if it returned, she stated she was done.
So,now over a year later I was able to find a DR at a top hospital who will work with us for my mom to receive treatment once again now that she wants treatment.
We went in for the inital visit with the new DR and she had the MRI and PET so, now awaiting results. Today I receive a call from the radiation oncologist wanting to set up moms appointment to be seen with them too so, I ask does this mean its growing in the brain again or is it for the chest. Of course they wont tell me.But, I knew this was coming no matter how bad I didnt want it to be so!
She is getting migrains more than a few times a week lasting hours into the next day. Dizziness to the point if she isnt near a seat she falls, out of breath all the time and her cough is horriable with her gasping for air. so, now I want to know does this mean its in the brain again? Or......I know I need to very strong for my mom and I will do my best to be. Just not ready for all this all over again with her being sick, knowing what all this will lead to seems unsureal and I want to wake up now!
