My sisters husband was diagnosed a couple of days ago with Anaplastic Astrocytoma grade 3, The doctors told him they are going to go in the week after thanksgiving and remove all they can, then on to radiation and chemo. I am so scared for him and I am hoping that it goes well and we can help him beat this.
I am wondering how others handle it? Chemo, surgery, radiation? and what is the success rate? He is so young, only 33 with a teenage boy and of course a wife (my sister). They have been together since they were in Junior High, he has been part of our family for over 20 years. The whole thing is keeping me up at night because I worry so much about just getting him better so we can put this in the past.
One thing I am wondering, if we do get rid of it, what are the chances it will come back? Is:)
