Sorry, I can't help you with information on what to expect next with brain mets. Probably radiation treatment of some kind. You say this person is a "close family member" but did not say what the relationship is. I am wondering if there is someone else who would be responsible for being the caregiver should that time come. If she has other family, why do you feel this should be your role? Lauri
