Husband was diagnosed in Feb 2011 with GBM after seizure in Jan. Biopsy led to clot which revealed tumor is most likely inoperable, although a small portion was removed with the clot. Started TMZ/Chemo w/ clinical trial drug Zactima on March 1st.
First MRI on May 12th, showed a nice reduction in the tumor - phew. Now he is on maintenance for the rest of the year. He seems to be getting progressively worse with headaches, fatigue and mental deficits. Waiting on the results of today's MRI.
MRI showed tumor growth in 2 areas. What a kick in the stomach! So he will be starting Avastin and Carboplatin next week.
