My husband was diagnosed with grade 3 astrocytoma and it is inoperable. It has spread throughout the brain, the two hemispheres and the corpus collosum. He is due to start RT and chemo. He has been unresponsive to steroids so far.
Can someone please give me hope that we can beat this. Do people make it without surgery? All the prognoses I hear or read about are awful, I searched the Internet and all I see is grim statistics. Especially for a tumor this size...
He has deteriorated rapidly, can barely walk and his speech is almost gone. I just don't know if he can recover from these symptoms with treatment? How soon?
Any information or a personal story will help me, I want to keep my faith and I don't want to accept thatthis is fatal. I want to believe. Please help me.
