    My husband was diagnosed in 2009, almost 6 years ago.  He has had ongoing issues with his left ear as well (surgery side).  His NO said it's common.  Sometimes the ear produces thicker wax (last time he had his ear cleared at the dr she said it was like a gold nugget), sometimes it inflamation. Radiation absolutely has side effects that can cause hearing problems.  The same is true for some c...

      Oh Marti, I'm sorry.  I check your CB site often so I was surprised to see this news. Are you talking about JOHN TRUSHEIM, M.D.?  I've heard some really good things about him.  My husbands NO worked with him at the Minneapolis Clinic of Neurology when we first started this whole roller coaster ride.  It's lonely in the trenches and gets overwhelming for sure but don't lose hope.  You'l...

        No, mostly because I just don't have time.  Some days I could really use it though.  If you Google "brain tumor support groups mn" there are some that come up in Minneapolis. Glad to "hear" things went well yesterday.

          Wishing you the best of luck.  The Dr's sure know how to put the fear of God in you, don't they? I'm in St Paul MN.  My husband was dx with GBM in May '09.  We got the same "14 month average survival" speech.  He's still here! All of his MRI's have been clear.  I don't know if the credit goes to the surgeon, his neuro-oncologist or who...guess it doesn't really matter.  We're grate...

              Trywww.dreamfoundation.org. They don't seem to have any age criteria.  It might be worth a shot. Good Luck! Peggy aka Mrs Bill

                Linda, I haven't logged on here in ages but I still read messages on a regular basis.  I don't know if you remember me but, my Bill was dx with the beast 5/1/2009 and I found this site shortly after that.  So many of you at that time gave me hope that the grim statistics meant nothing.  Guess what...he still remains stable... When I "saw you" I knew it must be good!  Congratulations!  I...

                  Wow...I was drawn here this morning too.  I haven't been on for ages.  I have the warm feeling of a family reunion of sorts.  I'm so happy to see you all are still out there pulling for us.  My Bill just celebrated his 3 year tumorversary.  It has been a long and bumpy road for sure and I wouldn't have made it through those first months without the support and encouragement of all of you. An...

                      Joanne, I'm so glad you found someone special!  For some that only happens once in a lifetime.  For you...TWICE!  That makes me think you must be awfully special too.  I'm sure the professor is smiling! Enjoy your holidays and keep grabbing life by the handful... Peggy aka Mrs Bill

                      My husband was diagnosed with GBM on 5/1/09 following a seizure in the Dr's office on 4/29. Prior to that morning, he was always healthy. I come to this site for support, encouragement, and hope. That helps me be more supportive for him. I also hope I can help somebody else by sharing with others our experiences.
