My mind is reeling right now and I feel so out of control.......I know this feeling all to well by now but we just got the news that some new tumors have shown up in my husbands brain again. He had 3 tumors 1 and 1/2 years ago and had WBR at that time. If I remember correctly it was 12-15 tx's. His oncologist is conferring with the radiologist at this time to see what can be done but I would like to know has anybody on here had experience with recurring brain tumors, if radiation is usually done a 2nd time, and any experiences with side effects from it? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely Carla! He was Dx July 1, 2011. He has had spots pop up here and there over the past 2 years in his bones (hips, post upper rib, clavicle, elbow and left shoulder blade) and of course his brain back in april of 2012. He still works and has not been sick per say at all with his cancer. He will be 51 in January and is basically still in good health. He does have some memory issues from WBR past as far as recalling names or remembering certain short term memory items.
