My husband has just been diagnosed with an Astrocytoma grade 2, large tumor in left frontal, small in right frontal. He had a seizure - no other symptoms leading up to this. This was 4 weeks ago. He has just started eating, still cannot walk or stand. Right side of his body is very compromised. We are going to the onocologist this coming Tuesday for treatment options. Is there anyone out there that can tell me approx how long before he can move his right side? I have him in a subacute rehab center, and he is mad at me right now saying I took away his rights, he is being held hostage, and he is not happy about it. I just cannot take care of him at home right now because it takes 2 people to move him and change him, etc. He has made very good progress in the last couple of weeks, but it is a slow process and I know that.
Also, what were the treaments that any of you may have had and how successful were they? Thank you in advance for any information you may be able to give me.
