      Hi our son had WBR after removal of a bleeding Met. He experienced tiredness through the treatment. He also had loss of hair so he decided to shave it all off. At the 6 month mark he was still clear and seemed to have no cognetive loss but Mets  in other parts of his body were too much to handle.

      On a positive note i met a person at a Support Meeting who had a Met removed from his brain followed by WBR and he isstill ok. The WBR was completed in 1994!

      best wishes
