Good morning !!
I would love some honest discussion / support / information etc on my recent discovery that my breast cancer has metastasised to my brain. I feel really well but would like to know what to expect. Have just had gamma knife treatment. Thanks in advance
Hi willow 1 and a very warm welcome to the online community
I'm really sorry to hear that you've recently discovered that your breast cancer has spread to your brain. Although I'm not a member of this group I noticed that your post hadn't had any responses.
I see that you have also joined the secondary breast cancer group and I think you are more likely to get responses if you post any questions there as this group focuses on primary brain tumours.
I have had a look to see what information I can find for you on secondary breast cancer that has spread to the brain and found this.
Wishing you all the best
