Back in February a family member was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme. They received one round of Temador and 32 days of radiation. The tumor is inoperatable. It was truly been a rollercoaster ride. Three monthes ago they were unable to turn in bed or get up without help, needed a walker and was very confused. Today 7 months after diagnosis they are walking on their own, but extremely exhauseted after going to the bathroom or doing any type of exercise. They still are a bit confused but their stomach is over 10 inches larger than what it was, it looks like a pregnant belly. They are only on 2 mg of decadron and seem to be getting stronger. What is going on?
