I hope this doesn't double post. I am not understanding the trimmed versus the full version in the preview of this email I am writing. If it does, apologies.
If anyone has any experience with stereotactic radiation for brain mets I kindly request they post or send me a pm.
My husband has recently been diagnosed with two brain mets. He has had constant chemo of various regimens since January 2010 and while it has held back fully his liver mets ... his lung mets continue to progress ... and now the spread to the brain. We are to meet with a neurosurgeon and radiation oncologist this next week.
I am partcularly interested in how others faired with this type of radiation procedure, the fitting of the halo device to the skull, and also the required administration of steroids to control inflammation and edema.
I am sorry I do not post more. It feels badly to post when just in personal need, but I could use some help.
Thank you kindly,
