One patient with glioblastoma still alive nine years later

My husband had an MRI 3 weeks ago and the results came in which indicated a change from the last MRI in August but could be post radiation/surgical symptoms.
He was diagnosed 1 year ago with a GBM (this is his 2nd brain tumor in 13 years), inoperable but had a procedure done here in Canada (brain port) that allowed them to remove the tumor, had 5 weeks radiation, has had about 4-5 months temodal but has stopped for a while to give his body a rest.
My question, knowing a lot about the reality of this disease, the change is one that i am worried about although they say could be postsurgical (surgery was in Feb this year) or post radiation. .Just looking for input...any comments? We have lived 13 years with 4 cancers so feel fortunate. My husband is feeling ok right now but i think that he hides how he really feels. He felt that he has beaten 3 so he can beat this one.

I am also curious about this. My mom had an MRI this last Monday and we were also told there was just a surgical change in her results and nothing to be concerned about. She had surgery July 24th and this is the first MRI since her radiation treatments
