Hello everyone! I'm Dimitris from Greece, i'm 50 years old and i would like to share my own experience with all of you here. Last may i've been diagnosed with a brain tumor, specifically with Glioblastoma IV according to the histological tests. In a week's time i travelled to Hannover, Germany to the International Neuroscience Institute where a great neurosurgeon and human named Professor Helmut Bertalanffy managed to remove the entire 100% tumor off my brain without any post-surgery complications, actually i woke up immediately after one day in the Intensive Care room and started walk around the building as if no surgery be done. Soon started radiotherapy and chemo (Temodar pills) ifor about a month n order to be "saved" the result on the successful removal of the tumor. I responded greatly to the treatments, only the Dexamethazone i took for avoiding swelling from the radiation caused me some muscle weakness on my legs that soon improved aftes some physiotherapies.
Could someone with a similar experience as mine or a psysician/oncologist let me know what exactly should i do in my life from now on so to keep healthy and not grow a new tumor again in the future? Thank you in advance for reading my post.
