My husband was diagnosed with GBM STAGE 4 on Nov.1st, 2011. he was told 12-14 months prognosis.
HE STARTED SPEECH, PT AND OT immediately after surgery.
We waited about 3 weeks to start Chemo and radiation. (the incison had to heal). The chemo was pill form Temodar.
My husband age 61, is in pretty good shape. He works hard to improve. He exercises every day as much as he can,even if it is a few minutes. He has gained most of his motion with his left as far as grasping, etc. He only uses a cane occasionally, his left neglect is much better, has trouble still seeing things on left but can read much better and he focuses on looking to the left to re-train his brain.
At this point it is Jan 26th, 2012 and we go to the Oncologist on Feb 10th, for an MRI. Our hope is the tumor shrunk or stays the same.
We are staying optimistic...We feel that is a major part fighting this battle.... You have to believe... The mind is amazing what it can do..
