Hi to all -
I don't post very often, but I definitely keep up on the board and pray for all of us as we go through this difficult journey. My husband, Dave, age 51, was diagnosed with a GBM last March. They were able to resect it, and he has undergone the standard of care, although he hasn't been able to complete very many cycles of Temodar.
The doctors think that his tumor may have returned, but they can't differentiate between recurrent tumor and the necrosis which he had removed last August, which showed no sign of tumor. They are going to put him on a clinical trial which will consist of a biopsy next week and a possible virus injection as well. He can still have the mass removed at a later date if needed, but we're going to see what the virus does first.
We've done a lot of research and put a lot of prayer into it, so we're feeling relatively peaceful and are hoping for the best. It helps a ton to remember that the Lord is ultimately in charge, and that all things will be done according to His will. The hard part is remembering that He does have a plan, even if we dont always understand it.
I will update when I get a chance, and wanted you to know that I'm hoping for the very best possible outcome for each of us. CindyO
