MY son was diagnosed last march 2012 with A cancerous Stage 3 brain Tumor, 3 days after the operated on him.
They than put him on chemotherepy for 4 months,this seemed to do nothing in August of 2012 they operated again on him,
this time the operation took longer and he almost hemeraged and took alot more for him to recover from.
They have since than ut him thru a Radiation treatment until the end of December 2012,that seemed to give us the only positive
out come in a year.They told us the Tumour had shrunk slightly and that it was inactive.
In Eary March 2012 my son callapsed in the bathroom and was taken to hospital,they said this could be caused from a little swelling from the radiation.
In April they started him on a AVASTIN & CHEMO treatment were he goes in every 2 weeks and gets treatments,he is now waitting for a MRI at the end of
The doctors have tod him basically there is only 1 other treatment that they can try after the AVASTIN.
Iam just hoping someone can give me some insight of my sons situation & if what they are saying about 1 more thing to try?
My son lives on the East coast and I live on the West Coast so I don,t have direct contact with doctors.
If anyone else has been thru the same it sure would be nice to no more about this
