Dear all,
I have the following question to community:
I have melanoma (Braf mutation) and now I have metastasis in spine L2.
Doctor has advised to make Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) in L2
with the following dosage : 5 fractions with 4 Gray per fraction (20 total)
From my searching via internet it’s not enough in case of melanoma, I mean dose per fraction and total dose.
Did someone have that experience with radiotherapy in spine?
Pls advice
