Hello I am 33 years old and was diagnosed with inoperable brain stem glioma.I am on my 3rd week of radiation therapy and will be on chemo starting next week. I have lost all my hair already and have not been feeling well at all.I have been week and nasueaus each day i had to stop working and everytone is telling me to quit school as well and im fighting to keep attending. Im scared and hope I live longer than the doctors predict.They say the tumor will return and all I do is pray it doesnt. I have a great support system at home with my husband and my 3 boys but i still feel so alone in this situation. I hate feeling sick and was hoping for advise and support on the discussion boards. I had a cat scan done and the tumoe seems to have grown instead of shrink from the radiation or it can also be radaiation necrosis. This isnt easy at all and im fighting each day for my life and my family...
