    One thing you may want to check into is a lot of these Hospitals insist you have the surgery at their facility to qualify for the trial. You can call and check. Hux.....

      I hope she goes back as well. I spent many weeks just going through the motions of personhood but not really connecting (more or less a ghost). Work, purpose and a steady routine really helped me reconnect to my circumstances and family.

        Radiation should help slow the progress of the disease. By in large you can expect a worsening of symptoms over time. The Dex should help alleviate the worst if the symptoms in the near term. Avastin may also be utilized to lessen the symptoms caused by the swelling. You should ask your doctor about that. There is no cure but timeline to progression is anyone's guess. Dex and Avastin should be able to drastica...

          I can tell you I actually went to work every day during treatment. I took the subway to Columbia and then after Radiation took a subway to my office downtown. I am in my 40's. The initial treatment for Brain Tumors (Surgery, Temador and Radiation) is not usually debilitating. Every situation is different but treatment itself doesn’t need to necessarily stop her from moving forward with her life. Hu...

            Yes, had Rash on Temador during the 11 and 12 month. Took some bendryl while taking the temador and that seemed to do the trick.   Hux...

                Who would fake a grade 3 inoperable Brian tumor???? That is some pretty bad Karma (even if you don’t believe in Karma) Easier ways to scam a little money and take time off work with probably less cosmic payback. Hux...

                  Look for some clinical  studies in your area. Also get a second opinion. Your  docter should be providing you some input in reguard to treatment.  There are other treatment options after Rad and Temador. Hux....

                    An ecapsulated tumor or one with clearly defined boarders is better then one that is less defined.  Usually an encapsulated tumor is associated with lower grade tumors as a more diffuse tumor is associated with higher grade tumors. Necrosis is also associated with higher grad tumors. Usually means the tumor is growing faster than it can feed itself (which causes cell death) Could also be remnants from ra...

                      90 - 95% chance of surviving the surgery isn’t all that bad. Many people can’t have any sort of surgery and would sell their soul for those odds. Not trying to minimize things but sometimes a different perspective is helpful. HUX....
