Well, in the process of trying to get an urgent appointment with the rad onc, I decided to e-mail him directly after the office assistant told me "we'll call you back". I was only hoping to "alert" him that I needed the appointment, but he apparently took it further and looked at my scan. I got an e-mail back from him 30 minutes later saying that he thought I would qualify for another Stereotactic since it was "only" 5 lesions and all are small.
I am impressed with this rad onc at UCLA (dr. Michael Selch), but the whole thing is not making my disease any better.
Love you all ladies with support and uplifting words. I'm still a bit disoriented, and it's not coming from the mets (I don't have symptoms from mets). But I'm sure it's quite common when given this type of diagnoses.
Caryn, thanks for the tips. I'll mention that to onc. I'm the one learning a lot from you. I always check Nancy's TNBC post, hoping to see your "update". I'm sooo glad you're doing good and your tremors are moving out.
Steph, that's what I'm going to do too. I'm just going to ask for enlightenment. I'm sure by the end of next week we'll know whether WBR or SRS is the way to go.
In the meantime, I am going to practice Whack-A-Mole until my arms get sore. Did they ever come out with a Whack-A-Mole Wii game?
Love you all,
Lani (for Janis...sorry, didn't get into the habit yet, but I know it's not too late to start)
