    Radiation (External radiation ): My doctor and I have decided for another round of Gamma Knife to treat the two spots on the brain. After watching them for several months and no new spots had shown, but the existing spots are continuing to grow. Went to MD Anderson in TX for a second opinion and to see if they suggested any other treatments. They said the would do exactly what my doctors are doing at Wake Forest.

      Short answer: You want ot avoide the WBR. Andenocarcinoma mets to the brain faily often but that said there are many many people who have several spots zapped with radiation and they go into remission for years. So while its not easy, although painless cyber knife can offer real results. Great that your going to MD Anderson. Get all your questions in order. Look at the material here and on about.com for preparing for a Dr's visit.
      Let's see what they have to say because there are 1,000 new therapies for cancer in the pipeline.

      I had brain radiation to hopefully keep those ugly little cells out of my brain. Lost my hair again and fatigued but if it keeps it away small price to pay. Good luck
