I'm full of worry. See I was diagnosed with an AA3 in August of 2010. Since then everything has been according to doctor's rules and a bumpy yet predictable road through this dis-ease. Suddenly in Jan 2011, my docs tell me there's enhancement! It could be radiation necrosis (where the radiation has deaden part of the brain-looks like a growing tumor unless it grows in future MRI). Surgery removed the huge tumor on the left parietal lobe, now a spot is appearing on the right, in the middle white mass, inoperable. If it's not radiation necrosis and it is indeed enhancement, I'm toast. I'm a single mom of one seven year old bundle of happiness. She's my world. Both of us are living with my parents now. My daughter's father is the best father to her but the worst person to get along with with me. He causes me the most stress. My boyfriend of six years isn't coping with my cancer well, he cheated on me. I took a semester off from school to go through surgery, radiation, and chemo. Now I'm on monthly temodar. I'm scared. So scared. If this is a new growth, life will be cut short before I want it to be.
