Good Morning Everyone - My husband had surgery on June 3 to remove a GBM Stage 4 tumor on the left side of his brain. The doctors at Shands Hospital in Gainesville Florida said they got it all.
He is now going through radiation and oral chemo. I know I am so lucky to have him with me. He is so tired from the surgery and now the chemo.
Has anyone gone through this where the entire tumor was removed? Can anyone tell me any survival stories?
I don't know what to expect, or what to do. I work part time, have to, and he is left alone for about 6 hours a day, with neighbors checking on him.
His personality has changed, he can't remember how to dress himself, he can't get his own food, snacks etc. I feel so guilty leaving him and I am so exhausted.
Sleep broken up, we have four kids, three local and only one can help me. She is over at least five times a week for her Dad and Me.
Any suggestions from anyone? I am desperate for people to talk to about the horrible tumor. I want to hear your stories.
