Thank you so much.......this helps a lot,reading it from other people that have been through it.The Dr's told us that it can change his personality (and it has)but I didn't think it would be to this extend.....again thank you so much for replying I wish you and your loved ones the best.

Personality Change

by Andrea1969 - June 26 at 6:39 PM

Hi everyone,

I came here to gather as much info I can on how to deal with this horrible desease.

My youngest son (24) was diagnosed with stage 3 brain cancer early this year.He had the tumor removed and went through a 6 week treatment plan (daily chemo pill and radiation).He is now on the prevention treatment chemo pill 1 week a month for 6 month.

He is taking everything pretty good and is very positive.

The reason why I'm here is to find out if anyone has had the character changes issues,angry outbursts and poor decision making with the brain cancer patient.

My son was never disrespectful towards me or my husband but he has been ever since he was forced to move back in with us.He NEVER EVER snapped at me or did other hurtfull things to me.For example ...I recently celebrated my 50th birthday,he did not wish me a happy birthday which is so not my soun.He has said hurtfull things to my husband,older son and me and is back to his loving and caring ways the next day..He is usually very caring,helpfull and loving....I feel like I don't know him when he has these outbursts

We are doing everything to make things easier for him but at times he refuses our help and makes very poor desicions(at one point he drove around with a flat tire and we had to tell him over and over again to get it fixed or put air in it,my husband even offered to go turn it in or buy him a new tire he refused...it made me crazy to think he's driving around like this...this happened before he was even diagnosed and SO out of character) and therefor things harder for himself.

I know in my heart that he is like this due to the cancer,my kid was never like this before.

I have a hard time convincing my Husband that my sons changes are due to the cancer and it makes me sad that my husband thinks otherwise.Has anyone had experiences like this?Any input or tips on how to best handle these situations would be greatly appreciated.....thank you in advance :o)
