May i ask what your dosage is? Two a day so I would guess 100's?
Temodar is a powerful chemo, it specifically targets tumors. I'm not sure I might have missed it, did you already mention if you have had radiation
They've been having great success with steriotactic high intensity focused 'gamma knife' type of radiation treatments. If this all started in '02 for
you I would imagine you've already dealt with it.
Here's a tip: Take your chemo in the morning a few hours before you get up (empty) stomach, along with your Zofram (I'm guessing that's what your
taking to manage nausea?). Go back to sleep then when you get up you can have a light breakfast. I would recommend a nutrition drink, something like
what we have here called "Ensure". Mix it with a cold frappacino is good. I cannot stress the importance of keeping your immune system and blood cell
Because you're back on chemo, I take it there is no possibility of a Resection? May I ask what part of your brain the Glioblastoma originated? Where
you able to determine that from a pathology as result of biopsy? If so was it classified as a grade 3 Oligodentroglioma at that time?
As you know, soon everything will taste like tree bark, and bathroom troubles from hell can ruin you. Drink
a sodium Nitrate drink a couple times a week, and water all day long. If you get too dehydrated, you will be punished dearly for days if you follow
See if you can get pill form cannibus, called Marinol, it should help with sleep and appetite.
Let me know if you need any more info, I had to deal with a Glio in my family for years as a care taker.
