My husband who was diagnosed ten years ago with an oligodendroglioma was in remission up until this past January. He was diagnosed with an astrocytoma graded between a 2 & 3. The doctors say that since he has had two surgeries and extensive radiation that he can't have anymore. All they can give him is chemo again. He is taking Accutane to slow down the growth. He has been very tired, lethargic and has no ambition. He is actually not taking the accutane like he should. I was wondering if you could give any stories or info concerning his type of tumor, prognosis, and coping strategies. Please. I am his wife and am going crazy with all of this!!
