My husband was diagnosed with a glioblastoma IV in 2004. His treatment consisted of surgery to remove most of the tumor, gammaknife surgery to impede the growth of what was left behind, radiation and chemo. My question is this, since the surgery his personality has changed in that he becomes extremely angry and frustrated over the littlest things, i.e. a knot in his shoelaces, tooth brushes not aligned properly, etc. I know this sounds like OCD and he gets over it relatively quickly and it's like it never happeend, but at that particular moment in time I hear such anger in his voice that it really stresses me out. We have been married for 23 years and I know he wasn't like this until after the surgery. Am I losing my mind or has anyone else experienced this kind of change after brain surgery?
