    Dear @Sonya9,
    I hope someone will be able to give advice on how to cope with such a challenging and scary situation.  I have only had a tiny little BC molehill  to deal with!

    Hi @Sonya9
    You have had a really rough ride so far, what is the pathology of the cancer, I know of a couple of ladies at the cancer centre who have been talking about having radiation to the brain.  While I haven’t spoken to them personally, I must say they both look well to me.  Fear is a constant feeling for me as well, please speak to a counsellor. I know the cancer council offer counselling services as well.  Wishing you the best with your treatment.

    I was reading recently of a lady who had undergone ‘whole brain radiation’ with metastatic bc and was back jogging 6 months later. It sounds terrifying but your medical team know what they are doing and have your best interests at heart. 
    I am finding that the way I deal with my fear is trying not to think past what is directly in front of me because anymore than that can be overwhelming. Sending a big hug xx

    Thankyou all for your thoughts and advice - my first session is Thursday, followed by a few more on a specific tumour on which is very near my left eye nerve.
