Whole Brain Radiation Therapy

My Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2003 and ended up having a lung removed.  The cancer returned in his remaining lung in 2006 and was successfully treated with radiation.  Now it's back - again in his remaining lung and his rib.  We found out a few days ago it has metastasized to his brain.  We are told there are three small lesions.  WBRT is the only therapy he was offered.  Has anyone been in a similar situation - three lesions - with any other therapy recommended or tried?

The things I'm reading about side effects are frightening and I wonder if his quality of life will be so compromised from the WBRT, we'll regret it.  Any thoughts out there?
