Secondary brain cancer is cancer that has spread to the brain from a primary cancer...
Dad's had headaches but other than that, he is doing fine, functioning normally, well the "new normal".
There have been changes in the brain, I don't know what that means and he has an MRI tomorrow.
I hate when we have to step out of our "normal lives" and are made to remember that he is ill when there are appointments/scans.
Someone tell me he will be okay and that we will make it.
I'm not sure how to answer your plea at the bottom of your post - I think we have all been in that position at one time or another on here and I so wish I could wave a magic wand for you and your Dad.
Please make sure when you get the results of his MRI that you ask the Consultant to explain CLEARLY what the 'changes in the brain' mean....
Until you have that clarity from the specialist no-one can or should tell you that he will be ok but I do hope that the news may be encouraging for you....
Keep asking lots of questions, ask for clarity for you both and keep strong.
All the best x
Nice to see your Dad has been going okay. All the very best for your Dads MRI tomorrow. You have coped brilliantly so far and so I have no doubt you'll continue to do so. We feared Tom's last weeks MRI was going to be bad news for us but it wasn't - continuing to show no change & no tumour growth so I hope you have a pleasant result too. it's normal to feel anxious but tomorrow has arrived and will pass. I hope you can get an interim result quickly. Tom's Oncologist phoned us the next day with his but I know some have to wait a while. Chase it up if you need to. Will be thinking of you and your family. Let us know how it goes. Positive vibes Jan.
