My father was "diagnosed" with Glioblastoma although there has not been a biopsy. We were told that prognosis is poor and due to age (94 years young) it would be best to take him home and let him live out his days without ravages of treatments, radiations and surgery. A very difficult decision especially without knowing 100% for sure. I have read about alternative therapy. I feel I Have to turn over ever stone for my Dad as he has been a true fighter and shows desire to live his life. Until 2 months ago, when seizures started to show up he was living alone, cooking, driving and enjoying a productive life. He was diagnosed yesterday with a 4 cm lesion on his brain. I feel completely helpless right now with options of doing nothing or aggressive approach of surgery, chemo, radiation and nothing in between. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
