was diagnosed in 2001 with breast cancer, had radical mast, left breast, radiation and chemo, dec 2004 one met to right lung chemo and wedge resection, 2007 two small brain mets, whole brain radiation with liniac and in march 2008 1 small met treated with gamma knife, no chemo since 2005 and all recent studies show no evidence of recurrence , I was on Epamin for 8 months but the effects were awful and since December 2008 not taking any anti epileptic meds. However I am concerned that WBR HAS SHOWN TO HAVE SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS THAT START TO SHOW UP ABOUT 2 YEARS POST TREATMENT. I had some post Gamma Knife edema in December and was given Celestone soluspan injections, I had my third injection last week and every time I have one I feel AWFUL I am starting to think it maye the side effects from the WBR. i HAVE JUST READ THAT THE HYPERBARIC Chamber is being used successfully to reverse some of the side effects any info on anything would be well appreciated
Thanks

I was wondering if you have had the HBOT treatment or if you have heard from anyone that has had success with this type of treatment thanks
