Hello This may not be the right place to post this as i realise the forum is meant for support purposes but we really need help as we may be in a bad situation A co worker aparently has Stage 3 Astrocytoma and we have arranged a number of fundraisers for her it has become a huge questionmark whether she is actually sick or is faking it We dont want to accuse her of something without all the facts so I am hoping there are doctors on this forum that can have a look at the timeline below and tell us if we are right or wrong...I hope we are wrong Here is all the info we have: 2014: • Has bad headaches throughout year • Goes to GP a number of times during year Dec 2014: • Headaches get worse , nausea and vomiting • Goes to hospital • Hospital sends her for scans • Doctor sees something ( we don’t know what) she has never specified • Operation opens head temple to temple • Doctor diagnosis is “fungus on brain” Feb 2015: • Headaches persist March 2015: • She goes for another scan gets second opinion • Doctor diagnoses stage 3 astrocytoma • No surgery follows End May 2015: • She starts chemo and then goes for radiation treatment - only one reported series of radiation June 2015: • Ends chemo Aug 2015 • Starts chemo again Important notes: • No mention of surgery to remove tumor • Last scan was in March • Next scan was scheduled for December but now she says that it has been moved to March 2016 because they need to wait for swelling to go down( stage three???) • She is on chemo pills on and off between May and August and has no hair loss (only shaving head…) • Still drinks and smokes • Very elusive when asked questions about treatment LITTLE TO NO WEIGHTLOSS I hope that you can help as I am afraid if she is faking it she will extract more money out of caring people Thanks for your time

All I can say is many brain tumors are inoperable, therefore no surgery.  Standard chemo for brain cancer is taken orally and doesn't cause hairloss.  Not as harsh as many other type of chemo's, so weightloss may not be dramatic or significant.  Many people feel that having an "incurable" form of cancer, which is AA3 is, is a sort of death sentence therefore, smoke and drink em if you got em.  Much more of what you describe sounds right then wrong.

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.
