My husband was diagnosed in December of 2010 with a brain tumor. He had had symptoms of hand shaking, balance off, dizziness, nausea, and slurred speech. We then went down to Indianapolis, IN and had the tumor removed. It was located on his cerebellum and was the size of a ping pong ball. They said that there was a complete resection, but we were waiting for the pathology reports. About 3 days later it came back that it was cancerous. So he was sent to have a MRI of his entire spine, that came back that he did have the cancer all up and down his spine. He is currently doing radiation to the entire brain and spine. He has to have a total of 32 treatments and has 14 more to go. Then he will have a month off and start 4 to 6 months of chemo.
I am just looking for anymore information or stories that anyone can share. This cancer is so rare in adults that it is hard to find much.
Thank you
