I have been on Xalkori for one year. Recently, I developed a number of mets to the brain, too numerous for gamma knife, for which I will be undergoing WBR. My question is whether I should discontinue Xalkori during the WBR therapy. I have received conflicting comments from the radiation oncologist and my regular oncologist as to whether I should stay on Xalkori during the WBR therapy. The radiation oncologist suggested that because of the "toxic load" it would be best to stay off Xalkori until the WBR is completed. My regular oncologist, however, seems to think staying on it is no problem. Any comments would be appreciated.
