Hi again, has anyone been recommended or received whole brain radiation? Wondering what to expect and how common it is among this community. 

Feeling alone here! And nervous too!

Oh wow! Thank you for the encouraging reply! Iím in that case now-  I had surgery for my first brain Mets and now this is my second brain Mets and it seems the drs are agreeing whole brain is the best option. 

Iím so glad to hear this led to NED for your friend! God willing, this will be the case for me as well.
