Have you had any reduction in swelling/edema from brain tumor growth or the treatments. Or, had any reduction in the symptoms associated with swelling/edema while on celebrex. Celebrex is used to treat inflammation in arthritis which is swelling. Thank you for any input you can share and contribute to this. My dad has gbm4 and takes the celebrex for his arthritis pain in his arm.

Dear joerullo,

The easiest way to locate other CSN members with similar experiences is to type keywords (such as "glioblastoma multiforme," "celebrex," "swelling reduction," etc.) on the search bar at the top of the home page. You can refine your search by clicking on the “Advance search” link listed underneath the search field.
