My mom went into the ER this morning due to extreme pain. They gave her a shot of diladid for pain and it helped. Her doctor ordered an x ray to see what is causing pain in her back. He said it is probably tumor related. We will know more tomorrow when the doctor Looks at the x ray. She talked to another doctor today which said that they can't do gamma knife or SRS on her brain because there is just too Many lesions in her brain. Her only option now is to o whole brain radiation. Her doctor said that she will probably only have a couple weeks left. I just don't believe that. last December he said three to six months and that was a year ago. I am concerned about what the whole brain radiation will do because she already has swelling of the brain and that is a side effect of the radiation. I just don't know how much more swelling she can take. She does not want to go on hospice because she can not do anymore treatments. She wants to do this on her terms and keep fighting until the very end. This has been and continues to be a very rough road for her. It is an awful thing when you get used to hearing bad news. If anybody has advice or bits of what yo expect it would be great.
