Please help with any information that you can. I really would appreciate it. If you have a glioblastoma I know the nature is to sleep most of the time especially with radiation and chemo theraphy going on together. My question is how much does this tumor, (right and left temporal lobes), effect your understanding of things. I know apathy is taken away but do you truly understand and care about things? Is it alright to sleep most of the time and just get up to eat and watch a little t.v. or sit outside for a few minutes. One says do what you want another says sleeping is alright. This is in stage IV. MRI confirms this but biospy had to much nercrosis to say this. Trauma center says 3-6, radiation center says 6-12. No one knows but does the patient really care or understand situations as little as what do you want to eat or do you want to see your mother? Ability to make discisons. Thanks for your help and I am a believer and will keep fighting even though my husband refuses to talk to me about this condition 2 months later. Even when we talk he will forget what we are talking about and say what. But I am determined to get this man up and help him realize we will go on.
