Oligodendroglioma My story

In 1998 I was diagnosed with a trumor. I was given a bunch of medication and  ultimately moved from the hospital. Being young I thought nothing of it since my symptoms were tolerable. In 2009 I found myself on the bathroom floor.I apparently passed out. I went to the hospital and they said I had a seizure. Never in my 41 years of life have I ever had a seizure. Well this started my cycle of events. I was diagnosed with a grade 2 Oligodendroglioma. It was watched for several years through MRI yearly. It was diagnosed by a biopsy. Due to the locating in the left frontal lobe on the motor strip surgery was not an option. I did chemo for 2.5 years and it showed stable so i was able to stop for 1.5years. it has not become agressive again and I am back on chemo. I have far outlived the expectations and I won't let this beat me. Please share your story and let me know I am not alone.

Hi Chloe, my wife had stage 4 glioblastoma and surgery in 2015. It came back and 6 months later had it resected. Spent about a year in Houston at MD Anderson in a clinical trial where they geniticlly modified her T-cells to fight the cancer. We had her on CBD's and THC through the trial and have kept using them ever since. She has had clean MRI's every 3 months ever since. She is doing great but has memory loss and some bone issues from the chemo and radiation. She lives a normal life except she cannot work as she has a short attension span and trouble with numbers. We are looking forward to enjoying our life together for a long time! I would do a little research on the bennifits of CBD and THC. I'm a firm believer in them. Good luck and long life! Aloha
