Last May (2009) my brother (age 51 and in excellent health) was diagnosed with GBM - Grade 4. It was removed at St Thomas in Nashville. Dr said he got all that he could find. Since then he has completed radiation and continues a week of chemo (Temodar) each month. Last week Dr saw something on MRI - thought it most likely scarring from treatment but wanted to be sure so he ordered a PET scan. Learned late today that there is cancer progression around the orginal tumor site. DR is suggesting another surgery followed by Avastin but said if he wants to go somewhere else he will arrange. He said he could probably get him in to MD Anderson, Duke or San Fransico. We want to do what ever is the best. Any suggestion, advice or thoughts would be very much appreciated. THANK YOU and God Bless you all.
