Hello!

 

I am a 17 year (almost) Astrocytoma Grade 3 survivor.  Diagnosed in 1997 at the age of 26.  Tumor removed on Halloween!

Chemo and radiation.  Tumor completely removed it seems.

I have been a 100% until recent seziures side effects in 2008 due to scar tissue in the surgrey area.

If anyone needs more detail about my story or just a plain survivor chat.

Please reply!

 

Cheers!

Scott H.

Hey Scott, my name is Gene. I am 25 years old and three months ago was diagnosed with AA Grade 3. So far they were able to remove close to 98% of the tumor and I am undergoing a combination of Chemo and Radiation treatment. I would very much like to speak with you if I can. Thank you for your time - Gene

I was diagnosed with an AA3 sept 97. I've been 100% in remission since then, as well. Other than your seziures, have you experienced any delayed side effects from the surgery and/or treatment?
