my dad had his first radiation treatment wednesday this week. he had a seizure on the way home! the radiologist on thursday wondered if it's because he didn't have enough Keppra in his system so she changed the dose and he did fine with the radiation on Friday. one of my questions is....is it normal that his hands shake so badly? it almost looks like he has parkinson's disease....we're so new to this. he was diagnosed on april 21. has had two craniotomy's. they removed the largest tumor in his brain but the other three can only be treated with radiation. i'm petrified......and his attitude is horrendous but getting slightly better. he has said he will REFUSE to go back to the hospital. he's scared to death of needles and when they do get a vein they aren't able to draw blood out...the only time they could was when he had his PICC line in but the oncologoist said he couldn't keep that in and take Temodar...too much risk for infection. i know i'm rambling, sorry, this is just so new and unknown for me...
