Good Morning All!
Well....this week I found out I have a new 2cm tumor on left side of cerebrum this time, Tumor Board is concerned the cancer is very active-it grew to this size in 3 months. I will undergo Gamma Knife next week as well as a full body Pet/Ct---hope cancer is not back and elsewhere because the gamma knife should take care of the brain quite well.
The Board is talking maybe a clinical trial on a chemo pill that will cross the blood/brain barrier and keep future Mets at bay. We finally pulled out of my Onc that she thinks two years of life left for me is about right, that will get me 3.5 years from DX.
At 48 yr old, I feel I will be on the far end of any experience/statistics, and go farther!!!
WBR does looks like a very last alternative as far as I am concerned, too many issues with that.
Keep you posted next week. Life is good !!
