my father is now six months into his journey with a gbm stage four that was determined inoperable. on nov. 1st we went to get his mri and were prepared for the worst because he has become very symptomatic to the treatment of temador, avastin, lithium, and the various other drugs. we assumed the symptoms were from the tumor growing because its touching the part of his brain that affects speech and memory and both were greatly decreasing. after the mri we found out the treatments are working!!! his tumor had shrunk 25% from its original size!!! we were ecstatic to learn this amazing news and it really helped putting us back into perspective and back into positive thoughts and back into the fight! I hope hearing this will brighten your day and help u get back the hope that we were foolish to lose ourselves so soon! and if anyone has stories of the same symptoms as my father i would love to hear your story... its hard to find anywhere that really gives u enough information on what to expect. just wondering how much of his speech and memory loss are permenant or will it come back to him eventually??
