          I have also followed Dodgerblue's posts since my Oligodendroglioma grade three diagnosis.  My 5 year mark will be on January 7th!  So far no recurrence.  It is comforting to read about other people doing well in spite of this terrible condition.  It makes me feel like I am not alone on this strange journey.  Best wishes.

            Dr. Berger at UCSF removed 98+% of my Oligodendroglioma grade 3 brain tumor in 2014.  I was on Temodar for about a year and I am doing great.  No recurrence so far.  Based on my experience, I highly recomend UCSF.

              Discovered my Oligodendroglioma grade 3 on Jan 7, 2014 when I had a seizure in my laundry room.  It was (98%+) removed in Feb 2014 by Dr. Berger at UCSF.  Temodar chemo for almost a year.  No recurrence so far.  The first year for me was extremely difficult.  MRI's every four months is stressful but over time you get used to it.  I still worry just before each MRI but for the most part I...

                That is fantastic news!  I am 4-1/2 years out from having my oligo grade three 98+% resected.  I too have a cyst that is in the tumor cavity.  NO says its fine.  My next MRI is in August.  It is a great feeling when you are given the all-clear!

                  Dr. Berger was my neuro surgeon too.  He removed most of my oligodendroglioma grade 3 brain tumor on 2-18-14.  I was on chemotherapy for almost a year.  No seizures since and no recurrence so far.  I have received excellent care at UCSF.

                    Oligo Grade 3 here  - 98+% resected in 2014.  I have the favorable deletions also and my neuro oncologist said radiation should be delayed as long as possible so I was on Temodar pill chemotherapy for almost a year.  Just had an MRI on the 17th.  No recurrence.  I feel like I have been steered in the right direction so far.  Best wishes.
