My mother is 62 years old woman with metastatic Carcinoma of fallopian tube, hypothyroid, borderline diabetes and hypercholesterolemia. She was diagnosed with fallopian tube endometrioid carcinoma in September 2012, for which she had optimum debulking surgery and 6 cycles of Toxol and Carboplatin. In April 2015, she had second debulking surgery for omental recurrence followed by Gemzar and carboplatin for 6 cycles. He had maintained her CA 125 in normal range Tamoxifen. She stayed progression free until September 2018 when she presented with solitary brain mets from Ovarian Ca for which metastasectomy was performed (right soliatory metastatic lesion) and consolidated with radiation (whole brain). Unfortunately, she had progressive of neurologic symptoms which she showed glories vs disease recurrence, second, craniotomy (right parieto-occipital) and excision was performed in May 2018. After 6 weeks of second craniotomy in MRI again found residual disease, since she already had whole brain radiation and it haven't effective at all, so I just want to know can she be treated with cyberknife treatment? If need more information to understand better, then please let me know then I will share the information. Note : I am non-medical person but I extracted above information from different sources, therefore if need more information to understand better, then please let me know then I will try to share the more information.
