My husband was diagnosed with a recurring tumor in the corpus callosum just last week (anterior, medial right frontal lobe). He had a grade III astrocytoma removed in January of this year (located in his third ventrical), recieved 30 IMRT(radiation) treatments with conjunctive chemo(Temodar) and had 5 more months of the oral chemo. We are waiting for a consultation with a neurosurgeon. His Medical Oncologist stated that this tumor was probably inoperable and that "cyberknife" may be our next option, along with new drug therapy. Avastin has recently been approved by the FDA. He was taking Temodar, but has quit the drug as it has stopped working against his brain cancer. I, too am looking for answers??????
