: : Diana, I did not have any radiation. I do know that many doctor's believe in preventitive brain radiation. My doctor never mentioned it, and we have not discussed it. Has your mother gotten a second opinion from a cancer center such as Sloan Kettering in NY orAnderson in Texas? Such a difficult decision. Best wishes to you both.
: she lives in a small town, and wants to be treated at home, but we did get her into a good sc trial 4 hours away from her house, she has one more vaccine to go and has to make up her mind before a month has gone by from her last shot.
: i saw your quary to shari, my mom had those needle biopsies. she was awake, but sedated for both. the first one didn't bother her because she had enough sedation, but the second one was a different guy at a larger hospital, who didn't give her enough sedation and it was uncomfortable going down.(sorry, hope that dosen't scare you) he let my dad sit right in the room with him as he did it.thanks for posting, i know i kind of intruded.
Diana, I did not have any radiation of any kind either. I think I insist on a brain scan before I agreed to brain radiation. I have had 2 catscans and 2 bonescans and both came back fine except for the lungs of course. What are the needle biopsy's about and how do they do it. When I was first diagnosed I had needle biopsy of the lungs, they went in from my back into the lung into the tumor to find out what type is was. Shari
