My mom has battled breast cancer 4 times. The last time it metasized to her brain. They were able to remove it and she had whole brain radiation. Her memory is horrible from the radiation and she has lost all mobility in her lower extremities. She seems a bit more confused and weaker lately. It's so hard to know if it's still the effects of the radiation developing or if the cancer has come back. She doesn't want to have an MRI. It has been 17 months since her brain surgery and they say radiation effects can show up over a 3 year period. But they also said most people with metastases to the brain only live 11 months or so on average. Anyone have experience with WBR or this type of cancer? I worry it's the cancer but she has already stated she is done with surgeries. That if it comes back that's it. She is 73. I don't blame her in that her quality of life has been destroyed from the radiation, but hard to know what's radiation caused and what could be cancer symptoms.
