Afternoon Ramade

So sorry to hear you have had such bad news. If you don't mind me asking have you been having problems sich as headaches. I have never had a recent scan on the head. I only get ones on torso.

How is your chemo going?

Sending you a hug.

Re: Brain mets diagnosed

Hello all, unfortunately my cancer is just running wild now. The hospital are give me 6 heavy doses of iv treatment, not much hair anyway the everolimus thinned that out. To be honest I'm in a bit of a state about the cancer in the brain. Any positive news anyone?

love and hugs

Ramade xx

Hi Maria! I've been thinking about you. I'm not sure if your 5 days of treatments were in a row and kept going through the weekend. Hope you are hanging in there with a minimal amount of side effects. My  heart is with you! FF

Re: Brain mets diagnosed

Thank you so much ladies xx the mask being made up was not a problem at all and  I have always been panicked in confined spaces.  The first treatment this morning was about 15 minutes, painless and I feel totally fine this afternoon, even managed a stop off at Sainsburys for a food shop.   I just have to hope it blasts those bad bits and I can get off these steroids, I am snarling at everyone.  What I have learnt ladies is that mr Google is not our friend !  Xx

Re: Brain mets diagnosed

Hi Maria

So sorry to hear of this latest diagnosis. It must have been a complete shock especially as everything else looked like it was going well and TMs were down.  I'm not saying its the case with you but recently Jellytot was told she had brain mets and after further checks it was determined she hadn't.  I can't remember everything about this but I'm sure that is the case.  I'm not giving false hope but just wondered if other checks or having your scan looked at by another person would give a definitive answer.  If of course this has already been done, or there's absolutely no doubt about the scan, then please ignore what I've written.  Wishing you all the best whatever happens.

Re: Brain mets diagnosed

Thank you Carolyn, I will try to find thread and read.  I allowed myself to be fooled into daring to believe a tablet a day would keep everything away, there is so much I am now learning by not burying my head.  I was the. Biggest whimp at running out of the onc waiting room.  Xx
