Hi all, I can't tell you what a relief it was to find these boards after my husband was diagnosed with AAIII. Unfortunately, I found them too late for some of the information to be useful BUT you always gave me HOPE. My husband is losing this battle quickly and the doctors have told me that there is not much more they can do w/o altering his quality of life and it wouldn't change the outcome. He has not responded to the radiation/Temodar/Avastin. The tumor continues to grow (it was inoperable from the onset). Carboplatin and BCNU are the next options according to the doctors but they feel that clinically he is not strong enough (he's sleeping 20 hours a day) and that it would just weaken him and make him sicker during his last days. Does anyone know of any other therapy/doctor/hospital that is offering any other treatment? I am having such a hard time with this...I want to explore every option before making this awful decision. Please help.
