    Hi Ubsueq, Thank you for your reply.  I am so happy for your brother, that he was able to get help with the blood clots. It is aweful when the one thing that can fix a problem can also cause others. Sigh. My dad had a filter put in, as well. I teased him about the bikini wax he got. His sense of humor was so precious to me. We think Bactrim caused dad to have internal bleeding. But not 100% sure. He was on so m...

      Hi Julie, Wow, so glad your dad was able to get the blood thinners. He had some unidentified internal bleeding, too, which made docs not want to give him thinners. He could have bled out. Not wanting that to happen, they had to leave it alone. So sad when there is something to be done to help a situation, then it turns into a problem elsewhere. We think the tumor in his colon was bleeding or the milliad of meds he w...

        My dad also chose to leave his cancered body and went on to be my Guardian Angel this November. My parents were robbed of their retirement years together. He had only retired a month when we found out Mr. Healthy had a brain tumor and probably colon cancer. It totally sucks. My dad was the best. My mom was married to him just over 49 years and they were supposed to go on an Alaskan cruise. Instead he was in rehab rel...

          Heaven has a new angel tonight. God answered our prayers for peace and comfort. Two days in hospice. Glad we were here. Suffer no more, Daddy. Haven't been online much, too busy with all of this. Maybe I will be able to share our story later. It may help someone else. God bless all of you in the struggle.

            To all of you that need a hug, here's one for you. I know I could use a great big one right now. Sigh.

              I agree about the side effects of not taking it, but what a mess this has made of him. He is now like a zombie...staring off and not responding to us too much. Could the GBM grown quickly since treatment stopped? Did the sedation meds do this? He seems so different. Complaining won't fix anything, this disease is just a terrible train wreck. Wouldn't wish this on anyone.  Crying at night seems like ritual f...

                Beware, be aware, be asking questions if you or your loved ones are taking Temodar. My father had no side effects of this drug while on it, but soon after his first treatment, he developed pcp, a rare pneumonia associated with taking temodar and lowered immunity. I did more research than I had initially when he began taking it. I found that some docs say that people on this regime should be watched closely for signs ...

                  My dad was diagnosed on Aug. 9th with GBM. He seemed to respond well to radiation and 100 mg of temodar and rehab. He had left side weakness due to the are of the brain the tumor affected.  He finished all treatment Oct. 10 but continued rehab. Now he has been in the ICU for 11 days, 10 on a ventilator due to possible PCP (pneumocystic?? sp?), a pneumonia related to temodar. He also has blood clots in ...
