I am writing on behalf of my father who was diagnosed in June 2013 with a mets in his lymph nodes as well as his lung. He had successful surgery in Dec 2013 and was recoverying well until he sneezed one evening, had a massive brain hemorrhage and we subsequently learned that he has two mets in his brain one of which obviously bled. He has had wbr since and 1 tumor appears stable(the one that bled) and the other has grown minimally. Our onco has said there is nothing left to do because of the tumor that has grown after wbr and is asking us to wait 6 weeks to see if he is stable at which point we can possibly look at systemic treatment.
My question is to those of you with profound experience - does the oncologists approach sound right? I believe in second opinions and also thought that the goal was to shrink rumors that are growing.(I do relize that wbr didn't work however)
thank you in advance.
