After fifteen double doses of radiation therapy whilst in a High Care level nursing home at Mount Gravatt in Brisbane Australia ????

        I was diagnosed with Anaplastic oligodrendroglioma Stage 3 brain cancer on the 22nd August 2014 at 2.30 pm. I was so scared for my life and freaked out when I realised that I had to phone my three sons who were living in different states to me at the time. I underwent brain surgery to remove a small piece of the cancerous tumour as it covered one THIRD of my brain and was impossible to remove. A 16mm by 6mm by 6mm wa...

          I have just read about Avaistin and there's nothing there about brain cancer. There's information on lung, colon and breast cancer including how expensive this particular drug is. I'm a public outpatient at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane which is a two hour drive each way from Toowoomba. As a public patient in my state of Queensland, Australia we have to take what we are given drug wise except, I refuse ...

            How on earth could chemotherapy be "more gentle" than the radiation treatment whenever I have already explained what happened to me when I'm exposed harsh chemicals??? The oncologist emphasised the IMPORTANCE of the radiation treatment over the chemotherapy as he told me "the chemotherapy is to mop up any left over brain cancer cells." We all know that I made the correct descion to opt out of the chemo. For the past ...

              No way Hozay would any sort of chemotherapy been more gentle on me. IF I had accepted chemo pills as well as the THIRTY single doses of radiation  I would most likely be dead by now AND immediately after treatment my actual quality of life would have been MUCH less. I wasn't able to have any stronger chemotherapy because ALL  chemicals make me have severe convulsions to the extent that I have been sitting o...

                  It's Aussie Marg here. My Anaplastic oligodrendroglioma Stage 3 brain cancer was diognised on the 08 /08/2014 at 2.30 pm .I had emergency surgery two weeks later and my brain cancer was far too large to be removed so a little sliver was taken and sent to pathology which took a long week to complete the results. I chose to not have chemotherapy as I have EXTREME chemical sensitivities which always result in quite seve...

                    Hi again,  So if your wife's tumour was approximately five centremetres across it would have been about the size of an egg. I found another lady who has the exact brain cancer that I have and even with the 1p19q deletion. This lady's brain tumour was also completely removed whereas mine was too large. I think that I have mentioned I had fifteen double doses of radiation therapy at the Princess Alexandra Hospita...

                      May I ask you how large was your wife's brain tumour that the surgeon was able to remove all of the cancerous tumour ? I'm asking you because my Stage 3 brain cancer Ananaplastic oligodrendroglioma was far too large to remove. It not only covered one quarter of my brain but it had tenticle like structures going very deep into my brain. My brain surgery team at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane Queensland Au...
