Thu, May 30 6:44am · Time for by CT Scan for Adenocarcinoma of the Lung in Lung Cancer

Hello @sakota
I have had several brain MRIs in the past 2 years since the mets were discovered in April 2017-do it every 3 months. Its very simple and not at all bothersome. In fact if small tumours show up they are easily controlled with the cyber knife treatment which is completely painless (I have done it twice). No side effects and feeling good.
I feel its better to know while the tumours are small as there are so many treatment options now.
Wish you all the best for your tests

I have adenocarcinoma of the lung with brain mets.I was on Gefitinib for 18 months but it progressed a bit more in the brain so Dr Wakelee switched me to Tagresso since the past 2 months. Have done Gamma Knife surgery twice for the brain. But side effects overall have been minimal-some nausea-feeling tired etc but not major. I continue to live a full busy day with my work, exercise, meditation and walks-and a focus on the important things in life. I live in Mumbai India. Glad to be on Mayo Connect

@margot69 Glad you are going to see Dr Wakelee. She is very very good and also very caring. I have been under her treatment for my NSLC adenocarcinoma for the lung with brain mets since the past 2years . She and her team are very responsive to any queries/problems you may have.
