    Mollie This needs to be monitored. The aggression probably will not get better until the dose goes down. Do you have someone there with you? Please call your doc and let them know of the aggression. Good luck

      Hello It totally sucks about your brother and all the run around you have been getting. I kind of hate to offer an opinion because everyone's circumstances are just so different, but if your brother is willing and able, I would stick to a medical center that is rated high in Neuro Oncology and I think you were wise in asking for a new doctor at MD. Maybe request a psych consult to help with the depression (to...

        Hello, Maria I, too, feel bad that you still carry such anger. When you get the gut punch of a Glioblastoma diagnosis, the days following are such a blur and it is true you have to put your trust into someone else to guide you through those first few days. The truth is that we just don't know what we don't know, so we look to others. I believe it is true that every patient is different and a physician just doe...

            Hello, Jon I was so sorry to see your post. I have been following your posts since 4/11 as your wife was diagnosed just shortly before my husband. It is true that you reach a kind of peace about not fighting any more. The next weeks and months will be lonely but I hope the fact that you did all you could and honored her with your loving care will help you through the really hard days and nights. Take c...

                Hi Shane My heart goes out to you as it is clear you are feeling overwhelmed...most caregivers justifiably feel that way most of the time. I'm not sure if this is any help, but when things got hard, we contacted the social worker at the clinic and she put us in touch with some helpful services. Perhaps they could even advocate for a scooter for your dad. Blessings on you. Hang in there

                      Oh Jon.   I'm so sorry you and your wife.  Clearly, you fought hard.  It is such a gut-punch when you transition to this stage.   My personal belief is that while it is admirable to fight as hard as you can, it is also admirable to make the decision to do what you are doing.  But it still doesn't make it easy. Blessings on you Connie
