I am having a hard time with the radiation I am receiving, I have only had one treatment and felt terrible afterwards, the next day the machine broke and I felt it was a sign not to go back. They tell em I have numerous mets all over and need the WBR, I am doing the hippocampus sparing though but still don't know if this is something I should do. Can anyone who has gone thru this already tell me if it took away the mets, came back, and the side effects you experienced? Also I do no have any symptoms from the mets so far so its harder to see why they need to do this. I am also on Tarceva which I understand could help with the brain mets as well. Any advice is welcome, I am supposed to go back this afternoon for another radiation session and dreading it!!!
