My husband was dianosed with Anaplastic Astrocytom grade 3 in july of this year. He underwent a partial removal of one tumor, the other is too deep to get to. He is currently doing temodar and radiation, which will be done in 2 weeks.
I'm just seeking some insight. My husband is on prednisone, which they are weaning him off of, but his behavior is all over the place since treatment has started. He becomes very irrational, argumentative and difficult to live with.
I know Prednisone can do this ( I an a nurse as well ) but I am concerned that the tumor is worse too. His physical sypmtoms are worse and his behavior is erratic.
Also, what do you look for as far as end stage symptoms? I know people can live a long time with this, but my husband keeps saying, he doesnt know how much longer he will be here. :(
His behavior has caused issues in our family as well and many friends dont come around or call like they did at first. He tends to say what he thinks, without filtering it first and he is aware he does this and thinks its funny.
Has anyone heard if AA3 can progress to glioblastoma? My guess, is yes, it can, but just want to know if anyone out there has heard of it as a fact.
Thanks for listening.
this is all so overwhelming for all of us.
