A little history of why I am here.
My mother had invasive breast cancer in 1994. She had a lumpectomy and had the nodes removed under her arm. She had radiation and cemo. Then in 2005 she has a non invasive on the other breast with radiation. Now here we are in 2008 and she had went in for regular checkups and all and the cancer has returned. She was having numbness in her arm so I took her to ER. CAT scan showed two small spots on the left side of her brain then MRI confirmed over 30 and her lungs covered as well. I understand that breast cancer usually goes to the lungs then brain…
She stared whole brain radiation this week for 10 treatments then we will do cemo. I am worried how the treatments will affect her this time being brain and lung. She handled them fairly well when it was just the breast.
Has anyone had this similar situation? It is called metastatic brain tumors meaning the breast caner has spread to the brain.
Thanks for any input.
I am sorry to hear about your mother. I hope that she will do good and I will keep her in my prayers.
