    In 1993 after 1st surgery and GBM diagnosis  I only did 6 weeks radiation then stereotactic radiosurgery.  2nd surgery in 1995. no chemo because back then nothing crossed the brain blood barrier. I chose to save chemo for last and so far have not needed it.  wish you the best and much success with your treatment.  kathleen
