My father was diagnosed in nov 2010 with kidney cancer... He had a full kidney removed and 1/3 of his other kidney.... One year later we where told he was cancer free.... Only to find out 4 months later that it had spread to his brain, lungs, liver and kidney linning on the side where there is no more kidney!!!! He underwent brain surgery and they say they think they removed everything... But because of his remaining kidney they cannot use contrast during an MRI... Because of that they want to do a full brain radiAtion instead of just local.... From what the dr said and what ive read about it the side effects are very bad!!! The drs want us to make a decision, full radiation or local?! That is such a hard decision to make....
I am so scared and worried!
