Hi there Esrinu,

It sounds like for the time being that your father is in remission. I dont know the history of his tumor or if he had a crainitomy or such to remove it along with the radiation. It aslo depends on the stage it was when found. but reglardless of whether or not any is left in there if they have stopped treament on him its probably that he is currently in Remmission. But on another note the GBMs have a nasty way of coming back so make sure he has follow up exams with his Doctor.I wish you both wellness. MrsBe
