I was diagnosed with glio blastoma in July of last year.

after using temodar every day along with radiation everyday for 6 weeks, the tumor had not grown and we seemed to have it under control.

I can no longer have anymore radiation. Still on Temador 5 days a month.

I developed extreme dizziness and at my last appointment they found another tumor. I have developed extreme dizziness.

The doctors now want to put in a Ommaya reservoir to treat this second tumor. Can anyone tell me the success with this procedure?

What other options might there be?

Any information is greatly appreciated.

The Chemo they want to use in the Ommaya reservoir is called Avastin.
