Mom’s WBRT didn’t work?
I was lurking for a while but am itching for an answer and needed to post. My mom got diagnosed in October as stage 4 ER+ PR- HER2-, with brain, lung, and bone mets. She previously was stage 2 in 2017, but was in remission until now. She had a craniotomy and bounced back really quickly, and went through ten rounds of whole brain radiation. Currently she’s taking Ibrance and Letrozole, and Namenda for the WBR effects. We got new MRI scans of her brain and the doctors say her mets grew, and new spots appeared! Is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this? I’m not sure what other solutions there are for her… we were told WBR is very effective. She has at least 10 tumors now, and some of them grew larger by 3mm from before she went through WBR. Any similar experiences or hope would be appreciated, thank tou
