    My husbands gbm4 was so fast moving that by the time his biopsy site was healed enough for radiation he was totally paralyzed on his right side, incontinent, confused and had great difficulty speaking.  Since our radiation oncologist told us that he would not regain anything that he had already lost, it just did not seem right to prolong his life in that state.  So we refused the radiation and stopped the c...

      I did not find this site until after my husband died from inoperable GBM. I was a wreck, feeling guilty for not trying harder to keep him alive but when the radiation oncologist said the fight would be to try to slow the growth but not to regain what the cancer already took (he was paralyzed on his right side, incontinent , couldn't think clearly or speak other than 1 or 2 word sentences) I said no, he would not wa...

        I am amazed at how long you have been battling---- Yes my husband suffered with severe leg pain.  He had difficulty speaking but the moaning got the point across quite clearly.  Since he was already on hospice when the leg pain started we treated it with massage and morphine. My husbands gbm was very fast moving, a horrific 84 day battle. My prayers are with you.

No one asks me how are you, in fact, except to my immediate family I have become invisible.  When strangers or aquaintances ask how are you I say aah-- ok.  If someone who knew my situation were to ask me I would probably be too stunned to speak! I have t...

            My husband had inoperable GBM IV of the thalamus. His cancer was very aggressive and caused measureable mental and physical decline each day. He was working on Friday and Sunday I took him to the ER because I thought he had a stroke.  When we left the hospital 8 days later he was almost childlike and had very limited use of his right side. My daughter moved back home and worked limited hours and my son came eve...
